I "discovered" this bug when I tried to import (compressed) srtm-data
I had converted with srtm2osm into my pgdb with osm2pgsql (I got the
error "file is empty" because the first line wasn't uncompressed
correctly). I "resolved" by decompressing and recompressing it with
gzip, so I am quite sure the osm-file was OK (file, more and tail also
"confirmed" this).

I could reproduce this bug also by simply compressing a whatever
textfile of 2-3 lines and then reading it with bzcat (the first line
got awful).
