You're serving up a PNG file with a content-type of text/plain and a
.ico extension.  So you're basically relying on magic in the browser.
You should at least fix the content-type, but IE is notorious for
ignoring content-type altogether and looking at the extension (or file
magic).  Does your little trick work with IE?  I don't have a winderz
box nearby to try it out.
