Not much I can do about that, unfortunately.  The Apache server is
iPage's, where the mom site is hosted.  Equally, the Opera browser,
which retrieved and decompressed the tarball for Ulrich, has no
facility that I know of for altering this behaviour, at least not in
the latest version.  I've posted on the Opera forum about the problem.

If nothing can be done, I'll put a note on the mom download page
alerting users.
