My gut reaction is that mod_rewrite doesn't have anything to do with the
actual problem.

Are you generating the the MIME header, or are you relying on mod_mime? 
If you're generating the header, I'm pretty sure your code is doing
something different than what you think it is. If it's static, I'd look
closer at your mod_mime configuration.

The only thing I can think of as far as mod_rewrite is an unexpected
interaction with mod_mime. Perhaps changing the order you load the
extensions will help.
