Or something else, such as not noticing that wget renames files to
<foo>.1 when the file already exists.

Indeed, what is reliably reproducible:

With POT files:
- downloading a gzipped POT file with Iceweasel leads to double gzip
- downloading the same  with wget gives the correct result
- that file is NOT double encoded on the server

With PO files:
- whatever method I use, I get a file that's gzipped only once.

After some investigation, this seems to be
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=610679 where Philippe
Cloutier did a detailed and apparently precise analysis.

The problem can indeed be fixed on the server side. See details in the
abovementioned bug report.
