Thanks.  Unless I'm missing something the main functional change
between our versions is that you have used  'finish' when deflating
whileI have used 'sync'.

I'm wondering why the 'sync' version doesn't work as I was using it
deliberately.  Am I using 'sync' in an inappropriate way?   Or could
there be a bug in the C layer of the erlang zlib interface wrt to sync
in the case that the input data is a multiple of the internal buffer
size?  Again more likely it is my fault.
