Example:

http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/showlog.cgi?log=Firefox3.6/1285588445.1285588512.20210.gz&fulltext=1

Seems like a gzip bug on tbox since the buildbot-side log is legible.
Going back through tinderbox history this has been occurring since probably before 2010/08/18.

This has probably also potentially contributed to a presumably unnoticed regression in the Talos tests on 1.9.2.

gozer has told me that he's fixed something like this before with buildbot with this patch:

http://hg.mozilla.org/build/buildbot/rev/bbb93feea7a2
Severity: normal → major
These Tiger talos runs live on an old Buildbot 0.7.10 install on talos-master.m.o. I doubt we deployed the gzip fix there, but might have accidentally turned on gzip at some earlier point. We're using buildbotcustom of rev 5683977a2707, and buildbot-configs of 5be6f01c2027, which would imply it was last updated on Aug 13.

The fail in talos will be a regression from the talos change in bug 598507. The buildbot logs have 
  *error: arch takes no arguments
Probably should farm that out to another bug, and possibly just change the check to |platform.mac_ver()[0][:4] == '10.5'|.

Memory fails to tell me why we backported the gzip patch to the old buildbotcustom.  Happened in revision d94b2b27d220.

Created attachment 479449 [details] [diff] [review]
Backout revision d94b2b27d220 on default branch.

I suggest we land this on a new 'buildbot-0.7' branch.
