I cannot recall what types of problems I've seen or heard about.
But seems some servers don't do it properly and the receiving user agent may have problem enflating the file .
Also it seems files like yor xml sitemap or robots.txt should be gzipped that way. If yuo want and need to make your file into an xml.gz rather than serving the original xml file compressed like that.
