can't handle quicktime 'moov'

Note that there's also some evidence that this typo affects other file types.  

That is: there's only one typo, the one for files of type 'moov'.  But it affects parsing
of the magic 
file: mod_mime_magic croaks--really, before it's read the entry, and hence it's not reacting

specifically to the fact that the file being touched is 'moov', but rather to the fact that
it's not any 
of the *other* types named earlier in the file.  So something amounting to the same problem
arises 
for any file of any type that's completely unknown to the magic file (the reported case is
Stuffit! 
archives, which are not described anywhere in the magic file).  

Reproducing the false behavior in these cases is harder, I can't provide you a complete recipe:

these cases produce the same error_log output as the 'moov', but since they're not described
at all, 
the resulting behavior is not so far from correct.  In our case, we're also providing a .htaccess
file 
for these, which includes MIME info, and the croak in mod_mime_magic seems to mean that 
.htaccess is never consulted, and hence we're not getting the right behavior from these other
file 
types, either.  I'm not sure of all the steps necessary to set up such a .htaccess file, but
I have 
experimentally confirmed that, if I fix the typo on the 'moov' line, the .htaccess files for
StuffIt! files 
comes back into play, and everything's peachy again.
