You're welcome. I never remember it directly. I have to open a bug page with 
an attachment and see what the attachment edit link points to.

Now if you can, provide a workaround for the inane bugzilla.redhat.com 
policy, found on no other Bugzilla installation I've ever encountered, that 
requires a bazillion hoops be negotiated to get any attachment loaded into 
the tab in which the bug page is loaded. Do the Redhat Bugzilla maintainers 
think all its users are running Windows sans malware defenses? What is that 
policy really supposed to be protecting? :-p
