I was getting a failure in this weekends CVS,

	Loaded suite -e
	Finished in 1.396762 seconds.

This looks like zlib crying at having to read an entry backwards. Fixing that gave
a similar error from syck where YAML::load returned false, raher than a record.

The patch below makes the suite greenlight again.

Is this due to me running latest CVS of ruby itself?
