@ Igor

FYI I having nginx 0.7.62 on another server which is being used to serve static content and it is using similar settings. It is not setting the Transfer-Encoding header. 

Here are the gzip settings. The files in question are between 2-50K unzipped. 

    server_names_hash_bucket_size 128;
    keepalive_timeout  0;
    gzip on;
    gzip_http_version 1.0;
    gzip_comp_level 5;
    gzip_proxied any;
    gzip_min_length  1100;
    gzip_buffers 16 8k;

@Dave - Cache-Control private is to safeguard against old caching servers which can cause problems with older versions of IE.  This setting doesn't affect the end user.
