When the RealPlayer plugin is installed, at least some attempts to download an
RPM package seem to be intercepted by the plugin, probably due a conflict with
the ".rpm" filename extension (RedHat Package Manager or RealPlayer Metadata???)


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RealPlayer as at http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/phoenixlin.html
2. Go to http://www.opera.com/download/index.dml?platform=linux
3. Click a radio-button to select an RPM.
4. Click the "DOWNLOAD NOW" button.

Actual Results:  
The RealPlayer plugin appears to stall trying to read the RPM...

Expected Results:  
Popped up the download manager.

This is normal. The file is sent as audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin, which is a
RealPlayer MIME type.
It should have been sent as application/x-redhat-package-manager

I'm getting this too, but from a ftp server accessed using the xul heirachial
ftp browser, so the http headers can't be the issue. It occurs on *any* ftp
server, even redhat mirrors such as:
ftp://mirrors.blueyonder.co.uk/mirrors/ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/8.0/en/os/i386/sendmail-cf-8.12.8-5.80.i386.rpm
I'll try it with a http-linked rpm and see what happens then.

Sorry, I forgot to say I am using the 23/07/2003 nightly build of Firebird 0.6
on WinXP, with the evil RealOne player installed.

Ok, apoligies.....Firebird isn't at fault.....it's Realplayer doing bad things
to my registry. Told you RealOne player was evil.
