I'm not so certain that it's a problem with python 2.4 v's 2.3. I have a nagging feeling that the compression and file writeout isn't complete when the verification step goes to try and open the file up again. Which results in it getting an empty file (len(content)==0), and the file contents appear perfectly fine when viewing the filesystem a few seconds later.

Just spotted the following line in the output:
[SKIPPED]: buildbot.test.test_limitlogs.MasterLogs.testLog

Twisted 8.2.0 or higher required

Wondering if perhaps the same problem exists here? Testing of log compression but twisted isn't new enough to handle it correctly. Might be time for me to upgrade.
