Default mahoro-ruby: Calling =flags to set type to MIME doesn't work

Package: mahoro-ruby
Version: 0.1-2
Severity: normal

If I set the flag to MIME with the flags= command like this,
it doesn't work:

irb(main):001:0> require 'mahoro'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> m = Mahoro.new
=> #<Mahoro:0xb7c228f8>
irb(main):003:0> m.flags = Mahoro::MIME
=> 16
irb(main):004:0> m.file("Issue")
=> "Microsoft Office Document"

(where "Issue" is a Word document in the current directory)

In contrast, if I set it via initialize then it is fine.

irb(main):001:0> require 'mahoro'
=> true
irb(main):002:0> m = Mahoro.new(Mahoro::MIME)
=> #<Mahoro:0xb7c71688>
irb(main):003:0> m.file("Issue")
=> "application/msword"

I believe that this is because you have to call magic_load to force use of new
flags but mahoro_set_flags doesn't do that. I don't know libmagic well enough
to know exactly the right fix.
