Could you provide the HTML contents?

Hmm, I guess that's because the PDF is handled by a plugin. It sounds
like a bug, could please file a bug report in bugs.webkit.org?

Yes, PDFs are handled by NPAPI plugins, while jpeg images are handled
directly by WebKit.

Hmm, webkit_download_set_destination_stream() could be a good
addition :-)

What WebKitGTK+ version are you using, btw?
