Tar  files with compression ="gzip" cannot be unzipped on Solaris

Just for your information.
I confess that my knowledge about compression algorithms is not that deep, and
having used interchangeably unzip and gunzip to uncompress single .ZIP files on
unix, i was wrongly assuming the reverse was also true, i.e. unzip could be able
to uncompress .GZ files too.

But this was only an attempt and unfortunately it just mud the water to the
point that you thought i was using the wrong uncompression tool.

What i'm doing is that i am packing together a shell and a binary compressed tar
to obtain a self extracting archive (much like the way unix java JDK is shipped)
and that shell is calling GNU tar zx, that in turn calls gunzip to decompress
the gzipped file.

To do this i'm using <concat> task that using the 1.5 defaults corrupts binary
files, in a few words Peter, i guess now you realize that :), i was bitten by
bug 26312.

My fault was i didn't debug enough before opening this.
Regards,  Gabriele.
