Bug Description

# Steps to reproduce:

$ lzma -c /usr/share/dict/words > foo

$ lzma -d -c foo > bar
foo: unknown suffix -- unchanged

$ echo $?
2

# using pipes works
$ lzma -c /usr/share/dict/words | lzma -d -c > bar

# gzip works
$ gzip -c /usr/share/dict/words > foo
$ gzip -d -c foo > bar

# This was possibly fixed here:

Don't require -S '' when writing to stdout and filename has unknown suffix.
