okay thats that bit cleared up. thank you.

okay, i think the clue may lie in the fact nginx proxies in only
"HTTP/1.0". So i would have to override the backend to break the
protocol slightly here, and if receive a request in HTTP/1.0 *but* still
can accept GZIP then give it.
Why only 1.0 incidentally?

yes, but i suspect you don't have much experence in this world. Amazon
has nothing to do with it, they are merely a cloud provider. The
instances are running OUR software, on OUR Linux setup. I shouldn't
have brought it up, as it appears to be 'clouding' the issue! :)
