[Project_owners] Mirror mime type issues?

Looks like at least one of the mirrors is serving XPIs (or, at least, IE 
View) with the wrong mime type (text/plain, no less)

e.g.:

$ lynx -mime_header http://www.devlib.org/mozdev/ieview/ieview.xpi  | head
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 15 Nov 2004 15:56:17 GMT

Accept-Ranges: bytes
Content-Length: 21743
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/plain

as opposed to the expected:

$ lynx -mime_header http://mozdev.archive.hk/ieview/ieview.xpi | head
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Mon, 15 Nov 2004 16:21:28 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.33 (Unix) mod_layout/3.2.1 mod_gzip/1.3.26.1a 
mod_auth_passthrough/1.8 mod_log_bytes/1.2 mod_bwlimite

Needless to say, I'm getting interesting bug reports.

Anyone else seeing this?
