This is hrev47314.

The current sniffing rule '0.50 ("BM")' recognizes text files starting with "BM" as image/bmp files. FWIW, changing the rule to '0.25 ("BM")' seems to fix this misidentifiction.
But maybe there's a more specific sniffer rule that works better. Wikipedia has infos on the bmp file header.

Improved the rule in hrev47387. It now checks for two bytes that are 0 in BMP files, which shouldn't happen in a noncorrupted text file.
