Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-12-13 15:54:24 UTC
I've just attached a file to bug 27211 (twice - once using lynx and once using
Mozilla; the result was about the same) and it turned out that when I try to
view the attachment, I only see its name, not the actual contents!

I was attaching a plain text .txt file using the "auto-decect type" option
(which correctly detected text/plain).

Since I can view older attachments fine, it would seem that it is uploading that
is broken, not viewing.

Thanks. This should be fixed now. Previously failed attachments should be
re-attached with others obsoleted.
