Description Tim Waugh 2004-05-24 11:44:12 EDT
Description of problem:
file *.jpg output doesn't make a lot of sense.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. locate .jpg | xargs file
2. read output
Actual results:
For example:

JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.01, aspect ratio, 1 x 1

What does this mean?  The aspect ratio is 1x1?  Or the dimensions are
1x1?  Either way it is incorrect.  Also:

JPEG image data, JFIF standard 1.01, aspect ratio, 0 x 0

0 x 0?
