That is actually what started this mess. If I try and use PHP to set
the headers, then the older IE browsers will not listen to the header
where I set the filename. I needed to redirect to the actual filename,
while still logging the proper fileId.

Like I said, im new. It's good to know, and I'll modify my config
accordingly. Thanks a bunch.
