A possible answer to this bug lies in the inability to load a non standard mime.magic file.
(see bug #9798)

the problem below can be fixed using this (and only this) extra paramter in the finfo_open() call:
finfo_open(FILEINFO_MIME, '/usr/share/file/magic');

BUT, copying the magic file OR using a different file will not work:
finfo_open(FILEINFO_MIME, '/some/other/location');

on Debian (or Ubuntu) systems the default magic file (which ever that may be) is apperntly not used nor is a error given about not being able to open the magic database.

Does that still happen with any of the actively supported PHP
versions[1]?  If so, please provide the file which triggers the
unexpected behavior for download.
