Thanks, Roshan for the new tip. Actuall found this
from my continued googling and thought I finally found
something that would do the trick but, alas, nothing
has changed. Since the original post, I've addeded the
mime type to a couple of files that didn't contain it,
/etc/mime.types is one, but this hasn't changed
anything either. This has become an extremely tough
issue for me to solve and I do appreciate any and all
input from the list.
