[Phpmyadmin-devel] Confirmation needed: mod_deflate

Hi devs,
In Export we can ask for a gzip compression. On Apache server with 
mod_deflate, this *can* produce a doubly-compressed file, depending on 
the Apache configuration (see [0]).

We can detect whether mod_deflate is loaded, but not whether it's 
configured to compress only certain MIME types. The detection is in 
place, producing bug [1].

So I suggest to disable gzip compression in the export choices, when we 
detect the presence of mod_deflate.
