Description Gustavo Guerra 2014-03-31 19:16:21 UTC
In .NET when automatic decompression is on, the "gzip" or "deflate" values are removed from the content encoding header, as that encoding has already been processed. This slight difference is enough to cause very weird bugs between the two platforms

This was caught on the Travis build of FSharp.Data
