Bugs, Bugs, Bugs and a nice speed improvement

This all started when a DSA (Debian SysAdmin (those with root rights on all machines)) wanted to upgrade the kernel running on our ftp-master host.

Luckily popen2 was used in dak by people that either did not know the gzip module python has, or it has been there since before that exists. Don’t know, but that made removing popen2 a not too hard deal, done by our newest addition to the Ftpteam, Mike O’Connor, stew (Thanks!).
