write report to stdout and compress it with gzip/bzip2.


And then what? :-) Are you saying you want to see it?

Actually, it produces no output whatever. The only lines in the report are 
from the cron job that runs AIDE. It must blow up right away, though, 
because it's always the first one in my mailbox in the morning.

I just ran it with verbose=255. It produced a report > 3 GB in size and then 
had the nerve to complete with an RC of 7!
