Bug Description

This patch (unfortunately not yet upstream acepted) is needed on top of LP 1825350 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gzip/+bug/1825350), and fixes a serious bug.

It was already developed and published a while ago:

This patch fixes data corruption issues, and thus is very important. Unfortunately, so far it has been ignored (there is not much going on on gzip mailing list in general). I would like to ask you to pick it up for the distro.
