Thanks for the bug report. This bug occurs because 'less' ignores the exit status of gzip. That is, 'less' uses the LESSOPEN environment variable to discover that gzip is the input processor, and uses gzip, but when it calls pclose on the resulting stream it discards the exit status returned by pclose. 'less' should inspect the exit status and report an error in that case.

I'll CC: this email to address@hidden to give its developer a heads-up. Mark, the original bug report is here:
