Err, this is weird, as the engine should test (test type) 
the MIME type, and then rename the file into .jpg.. except 
if you disabeld the type checking, or if the server sent a 
bogus MIME type.

Try to test the site using Netscape 4: unlike Explorer, it 
DOES respect the MIME type sent by the remote server. IE 
tries to be clever, and postprocess the headers using the 
data sent, which is a *BAD* idea.
