Summary0000371: magic type returned is 100% bogus: ", utcTime=2073-\0120-.0 23:85:8\012 GMT"
DescriptionTested using Mac `file` 5.41, Linux `file` 5.37, 5.38, and 5.42: a sample text file containing floating point numbers returns a bogus magic type, as in ", utcTime=2073-\0120-.0 23:85:8\012 GMT".

Steps To ReproducePut the above, or the include d/l file, and run `file` on it - it should return `ASCII text`, but instead it returns the indicated string.

Note that on a Mac with 5.41 it returns:
# file x.txt
x.txt: , not-valid-before=2073-
0-.0 23:85:8
 GMT
Additional InformationNot including "soft" (`file -e soft`) makes the return `ASCII text` as expected. Note that I tracked it down to a problem in softmagic.c:match() when it was working on either magindex 14184 or 14231 (skipping both of those seems to make it DTRT).
