I think this is a false alarm. It occurs when writing zlib compressed
svndiff data and I'm using zlib 1.2.3.3. I know this version of zlib
gives valgrind warnings during compression, and I think that the way
the zlib algorithm works means that it doesn't affect the result of a
compression-decompression round trip.
