After upgrading my system this morning, I'm getting an error running
gunzip when it reads from stdin.

Steps to reproduce:

    wget ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gmp/gmp-4.2.1.tar.gz
    gunzip < gmp-4.2.1.tar.gz >/dev/null

This sequence yields the following errors:

    gunzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error

    gunzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--length error


    gunzip gmp-4.2.1.tar.gz


I've narrowed this down a little bit.  It only happens under zsh;
under bash, the recipe works without error.  Thinkging that for some
reason, stdin was being opened in a text mode, I tried setting
CYGWIN=binmode before starting zsh, but that had no effect on this

I believe the upgrade that broke this was the most recent
gettext/libintl upgrade.  In order to link against the most recent
libintl, I have rebuilt zsh from source (both from the cygwin source
tarball and also from the latest zsh sources in CVS), but still the
problem persists.

I would appreciate any help that can be offered.
