I discovered that some AVI files could not be sent back to our clients, while
any other type of file were okay.  I narrowed it down to the first 64 bytes,
reduce it by one and the problem goes away.. And by changing some random
characters, sometimes it would fix it, sometimes not.
http://people.hbesoftware.com/~gozer/mod_mime_magic_error.avi is the file and a hex dump of
it looks like:
