thank you

I have confirmed that adding text/x-php (and text/x-php-source) to
mime-support package fixes the issue. Attached is a patch.

Charles, do you want to do the upload, or you are fine with NMU? (If
you have adopted the package, you might want to do an upload to
unstable anyway, so all bug reports for wheezy ends in your mailbox
and not Brian's.)
