 [[attachment:18525.diff]] will disable gzip (on apache2, IIS not tested)
 and php's zlib compression.  It will also send a 4K block of null bytes in
 an attempt to defeat chunking.  There doesn't seem to be any other way to
 force apache2 to stop chunking output without sending a content-length

 There's also a modification to force theme/plugin updates to flush
 immediately after each step.
