Thanks for the report.  However, you reached the wrong list.  Coreutils
does not maintain file.  And it's a shame that 'file --help' doesn't
list a correct bug-reporting address, either - you now have two bugs to
report once you figure out the correct reporting address (and
unfortunately, it's hard to google for a correct address for 'filing
file bug reports', so I don't have a quick answer for where to redirect
this report).
