Description of problem:
When using "file -i" on a bzip2 compressed file, it returns back "data" and not
"application/x-bzip2" as expected and as RH 7.2 would do. A grep of
/usr/share/magic.mime finds that "application/x-bzip2" does not appear in the file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type "file -i access_log_2002_09.bz2"
Actual Results: file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic.mime'
Expected Results: file: Using regular magic file `/usr/share/magic.mime'
