mod_gzip/mod_deflate, JavaScript & IE problem

Description: They are not a very good combination as problems have been reported in different applications with JavaScript not loading when served with mod_gzip/mod_deflate on. The error is not deterministic and cannot guarantee 100% error replication but it happens frequent enough.

Affected: The problem only occurs in Internet Explorer (6 and probably lower versions) and refreshing (F5) the page will load the script again. Firefox and Opera do not have this problem.

Solution: a temporary solution is to turn off mod_gzip/deflate in Apache at least for JavaScript in IE.
