Why small "Uncompressed Size: 2,048" for ssmtp




Hi,

I am wondering what makes aptitude screen to print:
  Compressed Size: 54.2 k
  Uncompressed Size: 2,048
  Source Package: ssmtp
for ssmtp package.

Uncompressed size is usually bigger than compressed Size.
Am I missing something.

INFO file in the ssmtp deb package has:

 new debian package, version 2.0.
