Media type filtering


it seems that there is an obejt within the PDF is blocked. If you call the Composite Opener PDFs will be extracted and each of it´s components will run through all the rules again. If there are non-pdf files within the PDF, they will be blocked and lead to the whole PDF file being blocked.
