Bug#4391: gzip -cd gives incorrect output

I can't seem to duplicate your problem.

I played various games with and without redirection.  I don't see any obvious
differences between the output of 'gzip -cd a.gz' in an xterm using ctrl/s to
stop the flow, and a cat of the previously uncompressed file.

Can you cut&paste the output of the above two command strings to a file and
mail it to me, or something, so I can see what you're seeing?  I'd also 
suggest you verify the md5sum of /bin/gzip:
