I've tried opening X.pdf.gz files from version 1.3, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.6 and they all open fine here.
When I compress a pdf file in Dolphin (with Ark) it turns into a X.pdf.tar.gz file and then I do get
the error you're describing. But I do have to explicitly open them with Okular, since it defaults to
Ark with that extension.
Other then that, I don't know.
(I do run Sid, but it's unlikely to be relevant)
