I was trying to mkid a file with no ending by specfifying the default language with --default-lang. However, that didn't do anything, mkid just says:

mstoll@gs3020:~/research/src-littledog/mstoll$ mkid -s -v --default-lang=text debug.log4j_testing_2008-01-28T22_46_09+0000_gs3020
mkid: nothing to do

If I change the default language in id-lang.map to "text", it works. However, the id-lang.map specifically states that the default can be overriden with --default-lang - which is not true.

In order to figure out what was going on, I downloaded the source and found something strange: mkid.c calls set_default_language. However, set_default_language (in scanners.c) does nothing - it is an empty function. This seems to indicate to me, that there is something missing and that is why my --default-lang isn't doing anything... The empty function exists since id-utils-3.2. Strange noone else has tripped this bug?
