Review request for kdelibs and David Faure.


Use KMimeType::findByNameAndContent as suggested by David.


The attached patch prevents a user generated link file, e.g. link to URL location, from being identified as something else. For examples, see the bug reported linked to this review request.

This addresses bug 224142.

Diffs (updated)

  kfile/knewfilemenu.cpp fbb0e48 



Generate a link file to a URL location and see what KDE identifies the file as.
