Mutt sees files with a leading dot just fine. But Evolution doesn't for
some reason. I know I could have renamed the file, but I hate doing that
because later I forget why I renamed it and hence what it is there for.
I could have renamed it, sent it to Daniel, and then immediately deleted
it, true. I'm not making much sense. I resent Evolution's not being able
to "see" and attach these files -- it's a sign of a poorly programmed

... just a suggestion: the leading dot indicates it is a hidden file or
folder. You could have made a copy of the file and renamed it.
I.e. *removed* the leading dot so instead of ".rhn applet cache"
you would have "rhn applet cache". IMVHO, this is why mutt couldn't
"see" the file to attach it.
