Really the browser is just doing exactly what it was told by the server:

$ HEAD -e http://subversion.tigris.org/files/documents/15/13430/subversion-1.0.3.tar.gz \
| grep Content-
Content-Encoding: x-gzip
Content-Length: 7228750
Content-Type: application/x-tar

which means this "an application/x-tar file sent using the gzip
content-encoding". For some reason this was what Apache did by default
for ages, it was fixed recently though; it could be fixed in the
tigris.org config too. Some modern browsers know to ignore it, I guess.
