[mod_python] Problem getting the Publisher handler to return nothing

I wonder if anyone can help - I am having problems getting the Publisher
handler to return nothing.

I am wanting the publisher handler to return nothing when clicking on a link
that points to a particular function which will perform a system command,
and I am using the recommended 'raise apache.SERVER_RETURN, apache.OK'

This does indeed stop the page contents refreshing, but has the odd
side-effect of the browser asking wanting to download a file (of 'python
script' type). This behaviour happens in both Firefox 3 beta2 and Konqueror.
It even does it if the function doesn't do anything:

def launch():
   raise apache.SERVER_RETURN, apache.OK

I am running Ubuntu Gutsy.

Apache and mod_python details:
Apache/2.2.4 (Ubuntu) mod_python/3.3.1 Python/2.5.1 PHP/5.2.3-1ubuntu6.3

Any pointers appreciated. Thanks.

Charles Collis.
