Thanks for pointing me to the gnatsweb.pl application. Is your mail an
addition or a replacement for Tom Tromey's answer? He said:

It is fixed in cvs.  The fix will appear in gcc 3.3.

It may, however, also be related to PR 7766, "ZipInputStream.available
returns 0 immediately after construction", even though that seems to be
related to freshly constructed, but empty ZipInputStreams.

Shouldn't I wait until gcc 3.3. before filing a new bug report? I haven't
been able to figure out how to apply these patches and rebuild the source
right away; and see if they also solve my problem. It's all still very new
to me.
