Adding songs to my iPod Classic, gnupod 0.99.8 (latest in Ubuntu 10.10 repo) incorrectly changes the extension of several bmp files to mp3.

file reports the following for file type for one of the files:
$ file The\ Tale\ of\ the\ Giant\ Rat\ of\ Sumatra.bmp
The Tale of the Giant Rat of Sumatra.bmp: PC bitmap, Windows 3.x format, 130 x 130 x 24

This file displays as an image in gthumb, and cannot be played as audio by VLC.

The affected files are attached to this report.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
