yes. That, for sure, will avoid some viruses. But the thing is that
file magic test is gone on my gnome. I believe a dist-upgrade removed
some gnome component which perform magic test. I just can recall the
name now.

Recent dist-upgrade wanted to remove a lot of gnome component. Of
cause I did not upgrade. The problem happened right after lenny's
release. If I can track my update history, I may figure out a way to
solve it.
