It's a longstanding bug in the mac version of frontier. Basically, the 
fileserving part of the webserver looks at the mac type/creator when 
determining the mimetype to send to the browser.

Unfortunately, 1) there aren't that many known mime types, and more 
importantly 2) manila does not encode the type/creator information 
when you upload the file.  It just writes a binary file of unknown 

The easiest way to fix it is to run another webserver to serve gems. All 
of the other fixes involve patching parts of manila.


I create, therefore I am.
