I can't reproduce this.

But I saw a different problem. It will rotate a 57 byte file when the size 
field is "1" (KB).

And it will remove file.N.gz and file.N.bz2 even if - is used (no 
compression). Even if that file is never created. That N is one more than 
is created. That is broken.

Also why is this so complicated?

                case 'J': case 'Z':
                        for (ziptype = __arraycount(compress); --ziptype; 
) {
                                if (*compress[ziptype].flag == qq)
