At second look the fix doesn't change any behaviour. The broken pipe
doesn't happen on small gzipped files anyway.

The patch you suggested last night:

--- src/ext.c.000	2004-09-26 00:02:14.000000000 +0200
+++ src/ext.c	2004-09-28 02:23:18.000000000 +0200

+    fputs ("trap 'exit 0' PIPE\n", cmd_file);
     prompt[0] = 0;
     for (; *data && *data != '\n'; data++) {

does indeed change the behaviour somewhat. Instead of a:
mc-proski/mcextery93a: line 2:  4118 Broken pipe             gzip -dc 
HardImage1.gz 2>/dev

I now just see:
Broken pipe

I still think this should be fixed below the fixme in get_byte(). Not
sure though.
