web plugin blocks downloading rev stack in quality centre

I tried to download an attached stack from the quality centre at
http://quality.runrev.com/qacenter/show_bug.cgi?id=8292
The link attempted to load the file using the web plugin instead of downloading it.
Is the expected behaviour?

Where does the revAvailableHandlers function come from?

put the revAvailableHandlers of this stack
will list the stack script handlers.

put the revAvailableHandlers of cd btn 1
will list the script handlers of cd btn 1.

It doesn't show up in the dictionary.

Is this function in one of the rev libraries?

The dictionary includes the info: By default, the recursionLimit property is set to 1000000. The relationship between the recursionLimit and the ...
