charset appended to content-type even if not text/*

I noticed that this bug is marked as resolved, but i'm not sure it is. I came 
across this situation today when setting the content type to "application/pdf".

when i viewed the compiled code i noticed this being set by tomcat:

response.setContentType("application/pdf;charset=ISO-8859-1"); 

I set the content type to "application/pdf", but i didn't add the charset. 
Tomcat seems to be setting the charset to the default when a content type is 
specified. In the case of "application/pdf" setting the charset won't work with 
Adobe Reader 6.0, 6.01, and 6.0.2.

Viewing the headers with HTTPWatch, i'm able to see that the content type 
is "application/pdf;charset=ISO-8859-1" even though i just set "application/pdf"

Could someone please let me know if this is still a bug.
