I had the same problem as Stephane, trying to open
siteurl/wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php gave me the answer to the
problem (thank you Andrew :), the file was garbled (i.e. compressed). Using
phpinfo(), I found that my hosting provider per default is setting
output_handler = ob_gzhandler (in php.ini). Setting output_handler to
nothing (output_handler = ) and flushing browser cache fixed the problem.
