that's not what "file" thinks about the attached files:
pudding.pgm:  PGM image text
pudding2.pgm: PGM "rawbits" image data

various "pgm*" tools accept them as well.
Those were created from gimp 1.1.19, and lxr reports no substantial
changes to plug-ins/common/pnm.c in the last month.

so this is, presumably, at least true for all the standard netpbm tools.
