Hello *,

I found that decompress hangs if data ends prematurely,

	content <- readFile fp
	doSomething (Bzip2.decompress content)

does not terminate in this case.
Data that is corrupt in some other way (for example, decompressing
a file that has not been generated with bzip2) is detected and
an exception is thrown.
