    I was on this site:
    http://www.purepwnage.com/
    And clicked on the link for "EPISODE 7 TORRENT FILE"
    which links to:
    http://www.purepwnage.com/torrents/Pure_Pwnage_107.avi.torrent
    and mplayer-plugin attempts to handle the file.
    This is not what is supposed to happen.

    I think that this error may be because of a mime type misconfiguration on the server and/or something wrong with mplayer plug-in. Even if the server is misconfigured to not have a correct mime type, shouldn't mplayer plug-in be able to stop the handling of .torrent files? Please investigate and advise as to a workaround and/or fix.

    software configuration:
    mplayer plug-in: 2.85 [ mime-types option not set in config ]
    mplayer: 1.0pre7
    firefox: 1.0.4

      The website is improperly configured. It is giving the wrong mimetype for the torrent file.
