Possible BUG with the Script FileType

Mailing List ml at NETGROUPES.CA

Tested against:
MailScaner 4.38.10 and MailScanner 4.40.11

Sending an EPS file thru when the filetype check denies script files
blocks the file.

My rough guess is that MailScanner parses the output of the file command
and finds the letters "script" and interprets it as such.

# file Friends\ Fr.eps Friends Fr.eps: DOS EPS Binary File Postscript
starts at byte 32 length 73761 TIFF starts at byte 73793 length 10437

Can anyone reproduce this problem?
