Hi Kate,

Thanks for the reply. I've looked in the File Associations settings, but 
I can't see a way to fix files without an extension. Files with an 
extension are recognized just fine. But konqueror should be able to 
check the magic number thing to determine the type of a file, but 
something caused this to stop working.
