Well, it does work, if you choose not to use an email-program. If you 
choose to sent the information with an e-mail program like Thunderbird 
or any other, the information will not be sent as an attachment. You 
only get the message:

The attached file contains data that was entered into a form. It is

So it is absolutly normal, that you can't send the information with an 
e-mail program?

I followed the instructions of Dai's video on Show me do Homepage, and 
there it looks like that there is an e-mail attachment in anyway.
Here's the link to the video : 

By the way, I tried this on Ubuntu 9.10 and on Windows Vista. It's the 
same result on both systems.
