Before I go and file a bug report, I wanted to ask here if it was truly
a bug, or just me with a bad case of CR disease.

If I uncomment the line

deb-src breezy-updates main restricted

in /etc/apt/sources.list, I get the following error(s)

Ign breezy/main Sources

Get:8 breezy/main Sources [305kB]
99% [8 Sources gzip 0]
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
Err breezy/main Sources
  Sub-process gzip returned an error code (1)

Reading package lists... Done
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old
ones used instead.

The gz file is there, and if I wget it and gunzip it, it unzips fine.

So, what is the problem?

Thanks in advance.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and
degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing is
worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about
than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has
no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of
better men than himself." - John Stuart Mill
