There was a logic error, the old decompress returned 0 for failure, new
code returnes 0 for success. uncompress_bunzip was working, however
bunzip2.c thought the file was bad and deleted it, the correct data was
still going to stdout.

No, i havent worked out how to integrate it into the rest of the
unarchiving code, im not sure what to do with bunzip_data *, either make
it a global static or add it to archive_handle_t.

It might take me a while to fix it.
