I can confirm this behavior and figured out what causes it:
The gitweb config should OK, it delivers it as it should. However, the
webserver does the additional packing, no idea why - but it appears
the config is messed up.
It's easy to reproduce:
wget $snapshot <- this produces a proper tar.gz file
wget --header="accept-encoding: gzip" $snapshot <- this produces the
wrong .tar.gz file that is doubly-gzipped.
So the webserver delivers this when the http client accepts gzip compression.
