You should have a look at the mime type definition for .csv in both
installations.

Are you using the same client between the two servers?  IE seems to
consider itself more important than mimetypes, and if it sees a file
extension it recognises it treats it as it deems fit, regardless of the
mimetype.  So one possibility is that you have just installed excel or
something on the client, and IE is redirecting the download there.

another option is that the mimetype being sent in tomcat 4.0 is different
to 3.x, but I'm not sure about this, so will let someone else answer this
option.

if you outline exactly what client/server you were using before, and now,
it will make the question more specific.  for intsance, tc3.2 on windows
with a win98 client with IE4.0 and now using tc4.0 on linux with a win2k
client with IE5.0.
