gzip compression won't disable

I'm running nginx 1.2.6 from a packaged install on Ubuntu 13.04. I'm at a
total loss as to how this is happening but I simply cannot disable gzip
compression for my server no matter what I try. Setting gzip off; in
nginx.conf in the http context doesn't work. I modified the default config
setting that was already there. I even moved it to the bottom of the
section to see if maybe there was something else that was toggling it on
after that config entry.
Is there something else I can look for that would be enabling gzip
compression on my server? I saw there's a static gzip compression module
that's optionally compiled in but that doesn't seem relevant to my
situation as this is a REST call.
Here's my response header from curl which does not appear to gzip compress:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx/1.2.6 (Ubuntu)
Date: Thu, 22 Aug 2013 00:08:26 GMT
P3P: CP="CAO PSA OUR"
22-Aug-2014 00:08:26 GMT;Max-Age=31536000
Expires: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
However that same URL's response headers in any browser (chrome, FF,
safari) are as follows:
Date:Thu, 22 Aug 2013 01:39:24 GMT
Expires:Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
P3P:CP="CAO PSA OUR"
22-Aug-2014 01:39:24 GMT;Max-Age=31536000
I'm certain that I'm doing something wrong but I'm out of ideas at the
moment on what to check. Thanks for any insight or pointers anyone may be
able to provide.
