gnome-mime.c patch

I happen to be working on something that uses mimetypes, and noticed a
FIXME in gnome-mime.c  The gnome_mime_type_or_default_of_file was supposed
to be checking with gnome-magic but was not, I made it so that it did.

Anyways, here is (hopefully) a patch.  I tested it, and
gnome_mime_type_or_default_of_file will give you the correct type even if
the extension is wrong, or if the file is empty.  I am kinda new to all of
this, do with it as you please.
