With the attached spec file and patch, xbm files are loaded correctly again.

Comment 4 Abrahm Scully 2017-12-01 18:21:08 UTC
As an aside, libgio-2.0's file type detection sometimes doesn't detect an .xbm file as "text/plain" if there are comments at the top of the .xbm file. If the .xbm file is detected as a different file type, the attached patch will not help.

For example .xbm files created with The GIMP might have "/* Created with The GIMP */" as the first line of the file. Those are detected as something other than "text/plain" and therefore will not load. The same files load successfully when modified to only contain the #define lines and the byte array.
