Description Derek Tattersall 1999-12-23 15:17:23 UTC
zforce should force a '.gz' ending on a gzipped file which does not have
that extension.  However it doesn't.  The offending line, line 27 in the
zforce script, greps for "defl" in the output of gzip -l.  gzip -l doesn't
emit a line with defl in it, so the test fails and the filename is not
modified.

Is fixed in gzip-1.2.4-15 - thanks for the detailed bug report.
