Version 1.6a1 (20051029)

In an e-mail there was a link pointing to an EXE-file which doesn't exist anymore.
When I left-click the link, FF opens with a 404 - Fine!
When I right-click and select 'Save Link Target' a save dialog pops up, and asks me to choose a folder to store the "application" in. After pressing OK, TB creates a file with the .exe-extension containing the HTML code for a 404.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get an e-mail with a link to a non-existing .exe-file
2.Right-click the link and press 'Save Link Target'
3.Save the file to a local HD.

Actual Results:  
An .exe is created containing the HTML code for a "404 File Not Found".

Expected Results:  
No file should be created.
Perhaps same reaction as if the link it clicked with the left button.

This looks like a dupe of bug 312727.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is 2.0.0.16)
