You're right, this wouldn't come into play unless it's a decompression
bug. And if that's so it would generate an error from the buildsystem
while trying to create the buildroot instead of a corrupted payload in
the built rpms. So not as severe. I'm checking to be sure it isn't a
decompression bug now.
