Typically the browser does the gunzip already. 
if one uses 'view source code' in Konqueror, Opera oder Geckos one already
gets the gunzipped file. Opera saves the gunzipped version for whatever reason 
with the wrong suffix .svgz.

Anyway if you have such a file on your local system, the typical problem is
the 'unusual' suffix. Concerning gzip/gunzip it should be 
vegetable.svg.gz to be identificable by default (rename it).
Alternatively on my system (Linux) I can use:
gunzip -S .svgz vegetable.svgz
(Then the suffix is missing completely, therefore:
mv vegetable vegetable.svg )
