User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021204

All real player streaming files download incorreectly.  Instead of downloading a
small file to the desktop, the stream address should be downloaded into Real
Player.  This problem affects both Macintosh and Windows builds of Mozilla.  As
far as I know this has been a problem that has always occured.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on any Real Player streaming content
2.Small file downloads to Real Player

Actual Results:  
Small file downloaded into Real Player is not the actual stream location and
cannot be bookmarked


Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have downloaded the stream address into Real Player.  This is
what Internet Explorer does and it allows streams to be bookmarked.

The bug has been fixed.  The downloads now automatically launch into Real Player.
Probably fixed by bug 86640, but not sure, so marking worksforme instead of fixed.
