I have tested the nullgzip, but it gave weird results restoring files.
This does not solve the previously reported errors, so I will stop
investigate further with the nullgzip file.
Again, as the previous e-mail decribes, it restores not all file and no
directories. Small files (text) seem to restore OK, but larger ones are
restored partially. I have attached an example of the COPYING file with
all used keys and the output of the command prompt.
