Error (bug) in gunzip

I want to use gunzip on linux to "uncompress" a winzip file

The size of the zipped file is around 13GB, while the actual filesize id
around 53GB.

This is whats happening. (I checked on the web and found similar errors,
but no solutions)

In the meantime we us Putty's pscp.

Hope this will be fixed one day.
