I'm not sure simply changing the value is the right thing to do - with older zlib versions (which do the wrong thing with 0), we definitely want that exception to be triggered.
For newer versions, we want to check that passing in 0 worked as specified in the zlib patch note and that -1 still raises the exception.
Changing the test behaviour based on zlib.ZLIB_VERSION is likely the best option.
