Thanks for comments. Reboot did not help. Re-flashing doesn't sound like a nice thing, because I just did it on sunday to get rid of wlan problem (no default router)...

Whoa!  gzip segfaults?

Smells like a hardware problem.  Or maybe a corrupt gzip binary.

Try rebooting.  If that doesn't help, try reflashing.  If that doesn't

Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
