Precompression hates me

I'm using GWT with tomcat 6 and 7. I've tried writing a filter to forward things if the requested content + ".gz" exists. That works, except for the fact that the requestDispatcher will commit the request and set the content type to application/x-gzip

How do I fix this?

which, as I understand it, controls the way the default servlet sets content type when serving resources.
