config file for only static files.

There is your problem, you need the source, non gzip'ed file for  
clients that don't request content-encoding. From my understanding,  
nginx locates the requested file, then looks aside for a gziped  
version if gzip_static is enable (and the original file has a matching  
mime type?)
