    This release of zlib fixed a bug with gzeof() 

Hi Dan -- thanks much for the report and patch.  I see Peter already
made the change in the sources (and updated to 1.2.6).

(I imagine it's nothing to do with you, but I can't help but say that I
don't think I'd call the old behavior a bug.  It was just the old
behavior, which was perfectly fine.  Seems like more of a bug to force
every user of the library to now detect the library version and behave
differently when it was never needed before.  They should have invented
a new function IMHO.  Oh well, no going back now, I'm sure.)
