From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22smp i686; en-US; m18)
Gecko/20010110 dkjfalksdjfkladsjf
BuildID:    2001080104

When I click on a link to a Real Player streaming audio or video format, it
leads to a save file dialog and not to the choice of Open File/Save File that I
get in Windows.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to, or any site with a link to a Real Player document
while running Mandrake 8.0 or another Linux distribution.
2.  Click on the link to the document.

Actual Results:  A Save File dialog window opens.

Expected Results:  A dialog with a choice of opening the file to an application
or saving the file should be displayed, as it is with the Windows version of
this build.

Tested again on a current linux CVS build. This still works for me.
Resolving as such.
