Use the above attachment to test with.

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-08-15 19:55:42 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-08-21 11:03:58 UTC
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...
