    ****************************************************************
    Some HTTP requests or responses use the Content-Encoding
    header set to "gzip" (Content-Encoding: gzip) but actually
    their contents are not zipped. The RPT test generator
    attempts to unzip such content and was reporting a failure
    when the unzip did not work.
    

Problem conclusion

  • If RPT detects a failure when unzipping gzip content, the
    test generator will now catch it and leave the bytes
    unchanged so the request or the response gets generated with
    the original content.
    

Temporary fix
