gzip middleware bug

The current gzip middleware forgets to update the response's Content-Length and so the uncompressed size is wrongly returned.

This caused my apache connection to remain open after the last files had transfered, untill it timed out. Standard setting for this timeout is 15 seconds, so it can be quite annoying. The page appears to keep on loading, even though all content has loaded correctly.

Here is the small patch:

         response.content = compress_string(response.content)
         response['Content-Encoding'] = 'gzip'
+        response['Content-Length'] = str(len(response.content))
         return response
