Fix from the upstream.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #588644 +++
Description of problem:
gzip fails to decompress valid compressed files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/expat/expat-2.0.1.tar.gz
2. gzip -t expat-2.0.1.tar.gz

Same file runs fine on F12 box with all updates.

The build is broken by gzip-1.3.13-rsync.patch - rebuilding without solves the problem.

I cannot reproduce it on my machine (i686).
`gzip -t expat-2.0.1.tar.gz` succeeds both with F-12 and F-13.
Do you use x86_64?

Ah, you also have i686, sorry.
I also tested it on F-13 x86_64 and `gzip -t expat-2.0.1.tar.gz` works there as well.
Do we have the same expat-2.0.1.tar.gz?
$ md5sum expat-2.0.1.tar.gz

Yes, same md5sum. Ubuntu seems to have the same bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/524366

The preferred solution for me is to remove the rsync patch. It failed to find its way to the upstream release, and now it causes problems that cannot be easily reproduced.
I'll remove that patch from Rawhide if no fix is found in reasonable time.

Most likely the issue was not caused by the rsync patch.
