  Great, thanks!

/tmp/setup $ od -tx1 -Ax bash.lst.gz

  Looks like it got truncated - here's the start of mine for comparison:

/tmp/setup $ od -tx1 -Ax /etc/setup/bash.lst.gz | head -5
000000 1f 8b 08 00 00 00 00 00 00 0b 95 95 4d 73 9b 40

/tmp/setup $ gunzip -v -d -l bash.lst.2.gz
method  crc     date  time           compressed        uncompressed  ratio

bash.lst.2

  Ouch!  That's not gonna work!

/tmp/setup $  gunzip -v bash.lst.gz
bash.lst.gz:
gunzip: bash.lst.gz: unexpected end of file

  So, looks like setup wrote the header and then bombed writing the rest of
the file.  Interesting... do you remember setup crashing (in a different way)
on the/a *previous* run before you first saw this problem?

    cheers,
