This won't work.  If you want to use type-map negotiation, the client must
request the type-map file (.var) directly.

If the q= setting is the same, then apache is perfectly free to choose
whatever image it wants.  I'd have to go through the code to be sure, but
I suspect that it is sending the smaller ones.  Unfortunately, I don't
think that there is any way on the server-side to specify a priority
listing for content-type (like LanguagePriority does for language).
