Yes, IE is so inconsistent with the Content-Disposition headers between the
various versions, platforms and patch levels that I gave up fixing it. I
also run a fully patched IE6 on WinXP now and it seems to be the first
version that runs without any problems.

Btw. Mozilla is also driving me crazy as it ignores the file extensions
completly and adds its own guessed ones.
