I don't know anything about mod_gzip but I do have one suggestion 
that will work.

A brute force approach would be to use a cron job to delete the 
temporary files. A small shell script or Perl script that checks to 
see if the files are older than a certain time and deletes those that 
are would be pretty easy to write.

Having said that, it would be nice if that module cleaned up after 
itself when it is done with a file.
