Subject: Re: [boost] [iostreams] 1.41 gzip filter regression

For what it's worth, I seem to have encountered the same bug with Boost
1.41. Strangely enough, our gzip unit tests work fine on OSX with 1.41, but
fail on CentOS 5 with "gzip errors." Same tests work fine on all platforms
with 1.37 through 1.40. I mention this in case it might have something to
do with the version of zlib that ships with CentOS 5? Alexander, which
platform are you using?

In 1.41 we are experiencing regression in boost::iostreams::gzip_decompressor.
Almost 50% percents of our test *.gz files failed to decompress.
Following code snippet usually throws gzip error:
std::ifstream f(n, std::ios_base::in | std::ios_base::binary);
std::cerr<<"cant' open "<<n<<'\n';
namespace io = boost::iostreams;
std::copy(b, e, std::ostream_iterator<char>(std::cout) );
Maybe that is caused by incorrect api usage.
In this case, sorry for the noise in advance.
I've attached minimal example that reproduces the issue.
Build showfile executable and run ./showfile myfile.odt.bz2.gz > result.
You should have 'error: gzip error' on stderr.
