Thats just the way Windows works. Somehow M$ chose to determine the
filetype by the file extension, and the file extension only (and then
they chose to _hide_ the extension by default... ;). 

A somehow related issue is that IE seems to prefer file extensions over
any HTTP headers, MIME types and such.

Mac has a forked filesystem keeping type information separately. Thus no
problem with names.
