A bug in "LocalFS".
In our local copy, I fixed it this way (in "LocalFS/StreamingFile.py"):
# DM 2005-11-07
# funny that we should not need a "Content-Type" header
# when the file is sufficiently small?
if RESPONSE is not None:
# DM 2005-11-18: support for 'if_modified_since' and range requests
if self._if_modified_since_request_handler(REQUEST, RESPONSE):
# we were able to handle this by returning a 304
if self._range_request_handler(REQUEST, RESPONSE):
# we served a chunk of content in response to a range request.
#DM 2005-11-17: 'Last-Modified' support
# DM 2005-11-18: support for range requests
threshold = 2 << 16 # 128 kb
if self.size < threshold or RESPONSE is None:
f = open(self._local_path, 'rb')
# DM 2005-11-07: moved outside the "if"
return filestream_iterator(self._local_path, 'rb')
The fix also provides "if-modified-since" and "if-ranges".

They ignore the (wrong) "Content-Type" and look on the filename extension.
