The problem, IMO, is in the xcpio() function of unmkinitramfs. It should
use 'gzip -t' instead of 'zcat -t', just as it already uses 'bzip2 -t'
and 'lzop -t'. Think that posix zcat does not document a -t option[3]
and therefore 'zcat -t' is not a portable way to check file integrity.

indeed, thank you for your help. I've commented and reassigned the bug

Thank you. I have sent a trivial patch to http://bugs.debian.org/903931 replacing also xzcat, as advised in the xz man page.
