man gunzip tells me on my LFS 6.0:
-c --stdout --to-stdout
Write output on standard output; keep original files
If there are several input files, the output consists of
sequence of independently compressed members. To obtain
compression, concatenate all input files before
there stands: keep original files unchanged
so i think it should behave so...
or do i mis-understand the manpage?

Yes, he does. You are mis-interpreting the function of the -c flag. If
you read the man page, then you'll see that the -c flag says nothing
about leaving the file intact.
