I changed the mime-type for .js from application/x-javascript to
application/javascript.  Since I didn't change any text/* mime-types,
I'm not seeing how my change could be breaking anything that wasn't
already broken.  The tests for zope.publisher run fine for me with my
changes, anyway.  Can you tell how to reproduce the breakage?

Since whatever code is breaking for you now probably was breaking
before (since it was passing in application/x-javascript, which is
also not a text/* type), I'm inclined to think that your problem is at
a higher level.

According to the link above, the status of the following are:

   text/javascript               "obsolete"
   application/x-javascript "discouraged"
   application/javascript    "intended for common use, should be used"
