The "add-a-patch" system in the bug tracker will check for mime-types after uploading a patch. When a file has some low ascii-characters, it will not be detected correctly as a plain text file. The upload will not success in that case.

There are some files in the php sources that have these low ascii characters present so patches on those files cannot be uploaded correctly.

Test script:
The files:
have some low ascii characters: ^K and ^L. Because of this, linux' "file" command detect those files "incorrectly":

jthijssen@debian-jth:~/php-src-5.3$ file ext/standard/tests/strings/strip_tags_variation5.phpt 
ext/standard/tests/strings/strip_tags_variation5.phpt: data
jthijssen@debian-jth:~/php-src-5.3$ file ext/standard/tests/strings/strip_tags_variation4.phpt 
ext/standard/tests/strings/strip_tags_variation4.phpt: ASCII C program text

Expected result:
The patch should be added to the bug

Actual result:
The bug database reports an incorrect filetype (detected: application/octet-stream)

Even if this is still an issue, I don't think it makes sense to
address it, since pull request are much more preferred, and we may
actually consider to remove the upload patch facility altogether.
