        # Fix a problem with IE 6.0 on opening downloaded files:
        # If Cache-Control: no-cache is set (which Rails does by default),
        # IE removes the file it just downloaded from its cache immediately
        # after it displays the "open/save" dialog, which means that if you
        # hit "open" the file isn't there anymore when the application that
        # is called for handling the download is run, so let's workaround that
        headers['Cache-Control'] = 'private' if headers['Cache-Control'] == 'no-cache'
