I propose this patch. The original version checked for a known first 
character to identify a valid file. As the new known first character is 
a "s", checking for this restores the original functionality.

Yes, the file could be corrupted in a different way. But this was also 
the case in the initial version. And other parts of the code do probably 
make similar assumptions.
