Build failed due to %doc file (bug in file?)

I just had a build of PMD fail.  Take a look at build.log:

So, first, the file in question opens up in Microsoft Word with no
warnings, errors, or signs of trouble, so I believe that it is a valid
Microsoft Word file.  Second, it looks like this is a bug in file.
Third, even if file fails, should we really fail the build over a %doc
