Summary0000184: files starting with "*** " misidentified as diff
DescriptionFiles starting with "*** " are misidentified as diff.
Steps To Reproduce$ echo '*** Title' | file -
/dev/stdin: diff output, ASCII text
Additional InformationThe use of "***" is quite general in text files and allows one to highlight text, thus it should not be used alone to detect diff output.

I had reported this bug 6 years ago in the Debian BTS (for file 5.17):
