Something, probably associated with wine, has installed a mime.type that 
overrides the ubuntu version, so that when I click on the above link, I get 
a session of wine, running IE, which of course can't display the .png.

For some reason, this 10-04.4 system has no mime prefs editor.

Has anyone a clue where that is so I can nuke the SOB?  Or do I have to 
remove wine?
