completely shut the browser (FF and IE) to see get the browser
make the request again. I would make a little change to the handler,
restart apache but the messages I printed to STDERR weren't going
to the log.
I suspected that as the uri /file_export wasn't changed the browser
just tried to download the static page/file again. I might need to read
the doc on the issuing correct headers.

I return to that part of the project again. I have a lot of tiding up to do
to it and I will see if I can use one handler instead of 2.
