  Unfortunately, I am unable to get it to fail again;

  FWIW, I have Emacs 25.2 and master installed in separate directory

  My .emacs configuration contains (among other things):

(setq tramp-default-method "ssh")

(setq tramp-ssh-controlmaster-options
        "-o ControlMaster=auto "
        "-o ControlPath='~/.emacs.d/address@hidden:%%p' "
        "-o ControlPersist=no"))

(setq tramp-persistency-file-name
      (concat temporary-file-directory "tramp-" (user-login-name)))

      I had an instance of Emacs 25.2 and master both running
      with only Emacs 25.2 with a TRAMP connection.

      I did a "git pull; make" and ran a new instance of Enacs
      (master) which contained the recent TRAMP GZIP modification
      patches.  Emacs started fine.
      While away from the laptop it shut down because the battery
      ran out.  After it recharged, I rebooted
        I started up Emacs 25.2 (emacs --daemon), edited a file
        (emacsclient test.txt) and started up TRAMP via:

                     C-x C-f /ssh:localhost:~/

        I then got the error I reported.

        A wild guess: did Emacs 25.2 use info that was cached/saved
        from mater. perhaps from the `tramp-persistency-file-name'
        file (though I haven't started up TRAMO on master for a couple

        This is the first time I got a GZIP error -- never had one
        before -- right after TRAMP got GZIP modifications -- strange

        However I can't reproduce it..
