[racket] web-server file upload content-disposition headers and IE6

I don't understand what you are saying is different.

You say that "the Content-Disposition header for the file upload is
removed in IE6". How, in IE6, are you observing whether the header is
removed and what does that have to do with Racket?

What Racket program is doing something different given two different
HTTP requests when you think it should be doing the same thing?
