Opera 9 beta and text/plain

When calling an ASP.Net webservice from Ajax you expect a content type of text/xml back from the server. Opera 9 returns a content type of text/plain which breaks all your subsequent xpath logic. I’ve searched high and low for an explination without much luck. Needless to say, I’ve been pulling my hair out and reverted back to Opera 8.51.Lets hope the new Opera 9 preview being released on Tuesday resolves this issue. link to news.com article on the new Opera 9 features including widgets.
