Hi Markus,

Yes, the package was split. And per your suggestions on how to split 
segments you instructed to join using cat.

Here's what you said (private correspondence) on Tue, 14 Nov 2000

I myself have never joined a gzip, only split them.  I notice you 
have published the segments, perhaps you can join the segments and 
post it???  BTW: if you don't use cat, what do you use?
