Shibboleth IdP and Novell Access Manager

Redirect messages are constructed by the operation
base64encode(deflate(saml_message)) and then reversed,
inflate(base64decode(redirect_message)), when it gets to the IdP.  The
error message states that that process is failing.  So either the
deflating or the encoding must have been done improperly.

How did you get the XML you posted?
