Are you using the -z flag for compression?  If so, are you using
the latest CVS version?  There was a bug in token.c that was recently
patched that can cause similar problems.  For further info, go to
and search for Masahiko.  If your error is the same, then the patch that
has already been put into CVS should fix the problem.
