You had no luck reading a document ?-)

What browser are you using? Many Mozilla releases ignore the
Content-Disposition field. Try downloading a patch from SourceForge
with your browser, and see whether it uses the SF file name, or
"download.php". SF works correctly in this respect, so if it won't
work for you, it's a browser bug.
