Since I can upload doc files on my wiki without any problem, it seems more probable to me that she has a problem with incorrect mime type (silently corrupted files) or some server-related configuration, but I don't think it's a mediawiki-related problem.

Don't know how to fix that either, using $wgVerifyMimeType = false; is very insecure according to mediawiki.org : (see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Mime_type_detection)
