Also, which versions of gzip and bzip2 are you using ? (--version) Apparently, older gzip versions had problems decompressing files larger than 4Gb. gzip.org/#faq10

Does gzip and/or bzip2 exit successfully ? (gzip file; echo $?) At which point is the file corrupted, before or after the transfer ? (That is, if you try to gunzip/bunzip2 the file where it was created, is it corrupted already at that stage ?)

comment File permission. Write and execute only?
In the context of a file: If it's a binary executable it doesn't have to be readable to be executed, if it needs to exec an interpreter that then reads the program (#! stuff) then it needs to be readable.

comment Open a screen session inside a certain user on boot Ubuntu Server Linux
As far as I know, unused arguments to screen isn't treated as a program to run, so: su -c 'screen -d -m /var/games/l4d2/run_the_server' - <gameuser>

comment Change first byte of file in Linux?
@jnylen It should be adaptable to changing an arbitrary byte other than the first as well, the seek=<nblocks> option to dd is what you're looking for.
