I slightly modified the GNUmed code to map mime type to
extension via its own file on *all* systems if it seems
necessary. Previously we only did that for non-POSIX systems
because POSIX systems were expected to provide the mimetypes
handling. However, MacOSX identifies itself as being POSIX
but did not provide proper mimetype handling...

That's the reason, BTW, why it is often useful to have the
*full* log, not an abbreviated one - in this case I was able
to verify that MacOSX says "I am POSIX" from info way at the
beginning of the log file.

I added one to CVS for the next release which we might link
to from the wiki.
