	NoContents indexes part of the _content_ if the file has the default
filetype (HTML*) -- it looks for some random HTML fields.

	I used Process Explorer to look at the process -- it still had
the file open to the "rogue .mbf" file.  The files before and after were
fairly short.

The problem was/is that for every file extension one includes in "NoContents"
one must also change the filetype from the Default HTML*.  Changing it to
TXT should be sufficient to stop the scanning, since HTML* is currently the only 
type that is scanned for Indexing keywords
I'd feel safer being able to assign some "Opaque" filetype to files, and not
calling a file "TXT" when it really isn't (future wishlist item?)...  How
about a "ReallyNoContent" switch that doesn't look for HTML tags for headers 
within a binary....:-)..
