This was working fine with 4.2.3.  Simple script, yes I should if $fp, but it is a test script.


    $fp=gzopen("/tmp/test.txt.gz", "a");

    gzwrite($fp, "this is a line\n");




$fp is empty but there is no error from gzopen at all.  I have all errors on.  In fact, you do get a warning from gzwrite and gzclose that $fp is not valid stream.

FWIW, I just checked and only append is affected.  If I open the file with "w", it works fine.  Obviously, I need "a", but that should help.
