A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Using GZIPInputStream to decompress a 60 MB file takes 5 or 6 times longer with JDK 1.5.0_07-b03 than with 1.5.0_06-b05 on the same machine.
This looks like Bug ID 6348045 which had introduced slowness in 1.5.0_06 builds 03 and 04.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Write a simple java program to decompress a file (previously written with GZIPOutputStream) and compare its performance on the current 1.5.0_07-b03 JDK versus 1.5.0_06-b05.
This bug can be reproduced always.
