Remind me why we are doing the filetype tests using the low-level API? I
can't think of a reason right now why we shouldn't use the high-level
API here.

Also, I just checked the code and we're neither using the session ID in
the URLs of these tests, nor are we setting any cache-busting headers in
request or response. We should add a new server-side command for these
tests that handles this nicely.
