Summary0000052: mp3 file is determined as "audio/mpegapplication/x-tar"
DescriptionHi, please consider this file:

➜ attachments git:(UCS-5425) file -v
magic file from /etc/magic:/usr/share/misc/magic
➜ attachments git:(UCS-5425) file --mime-type audio.mp3
audio.mp3: audio/mpegapplication/x-tar

I think that the expected result is "audio/mpeg".
Steps To ReproduceSources:
Compiler: gcc 8.2
OS: Fedora 28
Additional InformationAlso I would like to notice that at the place were I work now we use libmagic in many services, and we're interested in high quality of mime-type detection. Our QA engineers maintain set of files of various formats. I think that this set can be used as a foundation for modern libmagic's CI pipeline, which hopefully will prevent from such kind of regression bugs. If you're interested, please let me know.

Kind regards,
