In my testing today I killed the extra processes when the automake
checks were running and gzip did indeed pass without any errors.

I'm not quite ready to give up on  E2fsprogs-1.42.6 because I think it
only is a problem in jhalfs.  AFAICT right now, the test actually
passes, but leaves an unwanted background process running.    I'm not
sure we want the -k in the make check.  I get:

125 tests succeeded  0 tests failed

Perhaps if we kill the debug fs in jhalfs when we finish the checks,
that would clean things up.
