Does this actually cause a problem?

This was done on purpose so that we don't have to keep bugging people to add ".txt" to their patches, backtraces, debug logs, etc.

it causes a problem if you try to view a binary file, like the .jpg file I just uploaded. it also causes a problem if uploading compressed files etc.

IE on XP Displays the image correctly

By: Roy Sigurd Karlsbakk (rkarlsba) 2005-09-23 08:40:17

IE on XP looks into the file instead of using the content-type set, so, really, it doesn't count

Well, I think this is worth leaving the way it is.  The number of attachments that are text compared to the number of attachments that are binary is very high.  You can just save it to view it.  Thanks for the report, though.
