Using the gz compression should be fine, as most browsers are able to open
pages which use this compression mechanism. The only issue might possibly be
windows, but I've had problems before on that where the built in xp zip reader
wasn't able to 'see' the entire contents of a zip created in winzip on a
windows 2k machine.
Frankly, I'd trust the php and winzip things here, as its hardly out of the
ordinary for a browser/OS to make something that only works correctly with
their own software and screw testing anything else.

Yes, certainly that is causing the problem. As I said it is only the
decompress tool in safari that has problems. But the problem is that
most Mac users who download stuff from my page will not try again, if
the build in Safari tool does not work directly.
By now I tried:
default zip class
another zip class
zipping the directory using system call
Nothing has worked so far. Next I'll try tar.gz but am pessimistic.
