For a simple request (w/o Accept-Encoding:) of a .ps file we have
  Content-Type: application/postscript

For a .ps.gz file (still w/o Accept-Encoding) we have
  Content-Type: application/postscript
  Content-Encoding: x-gzip

For a .ps file with Accept-Encoding we get
  Content-Type: application/postscript
  Content-Encoding: gzip

No Transfer-Encoding headers anywhere.

So, this seems a browser problem and we should "fix" the web pages,
shouldn't we?
