#1078 gzip decompressing doesn't work in some cases

http (200)
Lux In Tenebris

request with GET for example
curl/libcurl will output compressed data though "Content-Encoding: gzip" header is present


  • Worked fine for me with curl 7.23.1 and 7.24.0-DEV, both using zlib

    You need to provide lots of more details.

  • I'm using curl 7.23.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.23.1 OpenSSL/1.0.0e zlib/ libidn/1.23 libssh2/1.2.8 librtmp/2.3
    Debian packages curl and libcurl3 version 7.23.1-3

  • And did you use --compressed at all?
