By default, newly added binary files are exclusively locked by Perforce:

'add default change (binary+l) *exclusive*'

This results in a 'Could not determine file type' error as the regex
the line to end after the file type matching group. Some repositories are
also configured to always require exclusive locks, so may be a problem for
all revisions in some cases.
