There is definitely something wrong. Notice what happens if I issue
the command substituting 'ls' for the 'gunzip' and not putting the
'.gz' at the end, and then piping 'wc':

randy at rmlinux: ~ > ls -l /usr/share/man/man{1/{cancel,cups{-config,test{dsc,ppd}},lp{,options,passwd,q,rm,r,stat}}.1,5/{{classes,client,cups-snmp,cupsd,printers,subscriptions,mailto}.conf,mime.{convs,types}}.5,7/{backend,filter}.7,8/{accept,cups{d,addsmb,enable,-{deviced,driverd,lpd,polld,}},lp{admin,info,move,c}}.8} | wc -l
ls: cannot access /usr/share/man/man8/cups-.8: No such file or directory
34


Now issuing the same command removing the comma after the 'polld' as you suggest:

randy at rmlinux: ~ > ls -l /usr/share/man/man{1/{cancel,cups{-config,test{dsc,ppd}},lp{,options,passwd,q,rm,r,stat}}.1,5/{{classes,client,cups-snmp,cupsd,printers,subscriptions,mailto}.conf,mime.{convs,types}}.5,7/{backend,filter}.7,8/{accept,cups{d,addsmb,enable,-{deviced,driverd,lpd,polld}},lp{admin,info,move,c}}.8} | wc -l
34


Since the same is returned except for the error, I'd have to think that
the comma is misplaced and should be removed. Or am I confused with this
as well?
