I get quite a bit of odd behavior with types too.  (How does OS X map
extensions to file types?  Why doesn't it just change the type of any
.txt or .tex file to 'TEXT'?)  This is another reason I've been
dragging my feet over changing how Excalibur handles file types.  I
don't think Apple has a grip on this issue yet.
