      Description

      Some combinations of OS/browser/files lead to unhelpful content types, e.g. uploading a PDF from Firefox 3 on WinXP can give a content-type of application/binary as discussed here:

      http://techblog.procurios.nl/k/618/news/view/15872/14863/Mimetype-corruption-in-Firefox.html

      Both IE7 and FF3 upload a .rtf file with a content-type of application/msword rather than application/rtf.

      In these cases, it would be helpful for content hosting to look at the file extension and change the content type appropriately (possibly trusting the browser-supplied content-type last rather than first).
