zlib is available, which can be used in addition to zlib for testing the fixes to libxml. 
 gzdirect() now works as expected.

  thanks !

  as long as the breakage can be seen only with zlib beta and not with
the main release I think it's fine. We should however synchronize so
that I push a new libxml2 release before the next stable zlib one,

  right ?

There is something that "bothers" me. I've applied the patch to the
libxml2 debian package already, and ran the testsuite with the zlib from
both current debian unstable and debian stable, i.e. respectively and Both were working properly, but considering the
above I was expecting failures...

Is the first version where it was really broken ?
