FIX: Ignore charset when checking mime types in LeftAndMain ajax resp…


This is partly a fix to #7574, although quite different from the work Ingo did on Content-length.  The text/json mime type occasionally gets a charset suffixed to it by the webserver, which broke everything.

A follow-on fix from this would be to get the PHP code to supply charsets more consistently, so that webservers don't have to make things up.

Additionally, the 2nd interpretation - which treats the response as text/html - should probably only happen if the response is text/html, and throw a more helpful error otherwise.
