I have an application written in MD/Mono and it uses GZipStream.  The application runs fine for a while, performing file compression etc, but after about 10,000 files processed, I get the following error:

    Failed to initialize zlib. You probably have an old zlib installed. Version or later is required.

I have checked my zlib version and it is  To make sure things were OK I went into Synaptic (I run Debian/Lenny) and re-installed the libary.

I recently downloaded the mono source and performed an update to what I'd had which was a version that came down via apt-get.  Is the above an issue when processing large numbers of files using GZipStream - or is my application buggy in some way.

Thank you,

Brett Senior.
