Interesting. I didn't even think to try Gopher+ at it. I'm not planning on
supporting Gopher+ at the moment due to the constraints of the browser model
(though for the full Overbite I will, when I get around to working on that).
If you can shoot me the URI for that 'test directory' I would like to examine
it, since the warning icon should only appear for itype 3.

Which query items didn't?

Right. I made a defacto itype 'd' (PdF) for those, with 'p' going to PNG.
I really don't want to do extension sniffing if I can avoid it since the
itype (except for the odious I) should be unambiguous.

Anyway, please E-mail me the Gopher+ 'test' dir if you can (private E-mail
fine if you don't want public examination).
