The new behavior isn't that gzip has problems on large files. It's that, now,
it indicates an error status so that Amanda trashes the backup.
So, maybe 6 months ago, the resulting file was valid and usable, but "gzip -t"
would indicate an error because the size reported was wrong. But it worked.
Now, gzip exits with error status 1, so amanda gives up.
