You probably miss  application/javascript in your list, or the size of 
your javascript in question is less then the (default ?) minimum size 
for gizp to be done, check the official documentation for this.

Anyway, an easy way to check if you are missing a mime type on your gzip 
list is to open your page with firebug (or similar) enabled and check 
the type and size of the particular resource.
