Subject: [boost] [iostreams] Ticket #5237 - Chance to get fix applied into Boost 1.59?

Hi everyone,

in our application we use Boost.Iostreams with GZip functionality to
write some data into gzipped output-files.
Eventually we realized, that we would get corrupted output-files if no
data was available that could be written to the output-file

By looking for a patch we stumbled across an issue-report [1] which
seems to be open for more than 4 years, although a simple fix was
already provided in its comments 3,5 years ago.

My question is:
Can somebody apply that fix to the development branch and could it still
make it into the upcoming Boost 1.59 release?
