Uhm, looks more like a flash bug than IE one.
In general, any server which respects the http protocol will only send 
compressed responses when the client declares support for it in the request.
To disable output compression done by php, you can
- check out the values of output_handler and zlib.output_compression in 
php.ini file. If you control that file, you should disable both. Or you 
can use ini_set from within your serever php file.
- verify if http compression is not done by the webserver after the php 
processing (eg. by mod_deflate for apache)

Not yet, sorry. The reimplemented version of xmlrpc_server_call_method 
does not honour the $output_options parameter at all.
It might be a nice addition, but I have no time frame for that.
