I did some research; that's basically PHP not supporting the full mime
magic file format. That's bug #366911.

Note that http://nl2.php.net/manual/en/ref.mime-magic.php says:

 Note:  This extension is not capable of handling the fully decorated
 magic file that generally comes with standard Linux distro's and is
 supposed to be used with recent versions of file command.

>From bug #357522:

 another workaround is to make a copy of /usr/share/file/magic.mime, i 
 called mine /usr/share/file/magic.mime.php4 ... then comment out the awk 
 regex line...

 then edit /etc/php4/apache/php.ini and somewhere in the [PHP] section add:

 mime_magic.magicfile = "/usr/share/file/magic.mime.php4"

 ... it's a hack.
