Use the above attachment to test with.
Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-08-15 15:55:42 EDT
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-21 07:03:58 EDT
Not quite as bad as it seems on the first look: It happens on files that are 
generated with "?foo=something" only.
(e.g. showattachment.cgi?attach_id=27933)

That file doesn't exist, so the dialog isn't brought up. The filename needs to 
be checked in a different place...

Looks more like a KIO::file_copy issue
Comment 6 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-22 09:44:54 EDT
