Sy and others--
The wmv file is detected as a text/plain mime type.
I enabled debugging (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/How_to_debug_MediaWiki)
In SpecialUpload::detectScript function it searches through the whole file
for text/ mime types.
It is hanging somewhere in Sanitizer::decodeCharReferences($chunk);
(approx. line 807)
If it were not detected as a text/plain mime type it would just check for
correctly set the mime type for a wmv file.
---> Has anyone customized the mime type associations for given files (as
used by Mime Magic? <----
My next steps are to look in the Mime Magic code, and/or any config files
associated with it.
