[Openvpn-devel] Trying to use zlib with openvpn

Last night after posting to openvpn-user maillist about
wanting to use zlib with OpenVPN, I had a look at the 
code. It seems the compression code is well-contained 
in lzo.c, I could even do a one-to-one swap of 
'LZO_COMPRESS' with zlib's 'compress' and similarly
for decompress. It get compiled and linked. I was quite
glad about that !!!

But of course, it is not so simple, it ran and crashed with
segmentation fault. I now suspect the decompression 
memory allocation is not big enough. Any clues
where else I should look at ?
