I think it is a bug, but may be I misunderstood the logic:

address@hidden octave]$ file x.txt
x.txt: gzip compressed data, from Unix

Should not that be ASCII text?

As you suggest above, it is how you interpret the logic I guess. If you were to unzip x.txt, you may find it is text. That is, text/binary are two complementary options. -zip is an additional, independent option. You may be thinking that -text at the command line should override all default settings.
