If python 3.x (tested 3.) is used for the client, output files are slaughtered.
Imported issue: Initially reported by @thome in https://gforge.inria.fr/tracker/?group_id=2065&aid=21408
It says, in particular:
gzip: stdin: crc error
bash-4.4$ gzip -t /tmp/cado.agcc96la/c30.upload/c30.51000-52000.sf20myrd.gz
gzip: /tmp/cado.agcc96la/c30.upload/c30.51000-52000.sf20myrd.gz: crc error
I have a strong, strong feeling that it's python's fault:
xxd -ps -c1 /tmp/cado.agcc96la/c30.upload/c30.51000-52000.sf20myrd.gz | sort | uniq -c | wc -l
Namely: all bytes are present with a uniform probability, except 0d which is just never there.
Note: on this machine, python 3.6 is used for both the client and the server.
