PmWiki only sends MIME type for files if direct download is voluntarily  
disabled (with $EnableDirectDownload = 0; in config.php, see
  http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/UploadVariables#EnableDirectDownload ).

If you don't have this disabled, it is very probable that there is a  
misconfiguration of the server software you use. It might also be a problem  
with your browser or proxy, but as on other sites you see the pictures  
correctly, this would be less probable.

How you can fix it, it depends on your server configuration: read the  
documentation and compare the differences with your other server where it
