Hi again,

While going through the bug-database I noticed that 6539727 is no bug
- the code is just mis-using Deflater.
The old deflater implementation did/does not return any bytes when
deflateParams() has to be called, at a second call deflate() is called
again and further data is processed.

The problem is that the reporter expects that Deflater does always
return bytes, without calling finished().
