Warning Two data files on downloads page may be damaged

I was just loading up new versions of the auxiliary data sets for Geant4 10.2.p01, and I discovered that the two with a x.x.1 "patch" version are not recognized as proper gzipped files. Specifically, G4ENSDFSTATE.1.2.1.tar.gz and G4RadioactiveDecay.4.3.1.tar.gz are rejected by my Linux systems as being "not in gzip format". This is the case whether I try gunzip or "tar xzf". Fortunately for me, "tar xzf" worked properly under OS X 10.10.5, though gunzip did not; I have no idea why. Anyway, I was able to transfer the decompressed data files from my Mac to my Linux machines, but you might want to re-compress these data sets and confirm that Linux is happy with them. (Both my Linux clusters have gzip 1.3.12 from 2007, which may be part of the problem for me, but I've never encountered this error before, so I thought I should bring the issue to your attention.)
