changing mimetype of .ico files to "image/x-icon". Details follow:

While Wikipedia would lead you to be believe one thing...
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICO_(file_format)#MIME_type
... specifically that the vnd.microsoft.icon mime type is correct..

Well that's wrong.

It does work in the address bar, IE can also use an .ico file as an
<img src> in some cases. But it has to be served as image/x-icon
instead.

So thanks a lot wikipedia & jimmy wales' face. Psh.

Thanks a bunch Jonathan Neal. Fixes #219
