Is this a bug in the bzip library or in boost::iostreams? The crash is
in BZ_API() (), which comes from from bzip.c. This function is being
called from bzip2_base::end(), which is part of the boost::iostreams
If someone would like to test this, I can provide the file that causes
the problem. I'd like to know whether I should be posting this problem
to the makers of bzip instead.
