longer identifies AVI files.

I am using PHP4's mime_content_type() function to idetify files during
an data import operation. Previously (version unknown, but current as of
March 2005), all file were identified correctly. However, I have
attempted to perform an import for the first time in a long time, and
have discovered that AVI files are no longer detected. the function
returns an empty string instead of "video/x-msvideo".
The magic/magic.mime databases are up to date and in fact, detect said
AVI files just fine, leading me to suspect that the problem lies with
PHP4. Other file types don't seem to be affected, I've tested with
quicktime files and so on.
