[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#689258: Does not display content of symlinked .diff.gz files

I realized I didn't provide enough context, I briefly explain my use case.

During my FTP Team tasks, I analyze packages with mc. Files in the NEW
queue are stored on a specific directory, and get symlinked into a
temporary directory by dak when I pick a package, to allow for a
quicker processing. File names are preserved, and I have this

/srv/ftp-master.debian.org/tmp/foo_0.1-1.diff.gz ->

This behaviour only happens with diff.gz files, debian.tar.* and
orig.tar.* work as expected.
