Don't worry, it's "normal", especially if you are browsing with
Internet Explorer.

In an application I wrote that served TIFF files I had the same
problem initially, until I
started catching and ignoring this particular exception; with Mozilla
the exceptions
simply did not appear.

I believe this is a side-effect of the dumb way that IE uses to figure
out the content type
of the stream it receives, even when the server specifies it.
