    In such a case, your script ought to apply some safety measures.
    Like putting some guards in front that verify that the printed type for
    specific files matches your expectations. It wouldn't take much to
    your own small set of input files as an automatic test-suite.

I thought the same thing about the file program. The change should have caused a regression when running its self tests. The authors should have known there was a problem with what they did.

It was an intentional change. If the test failed, they would have changed the test.
