Seems a bit of a hack. I think a better solution would be to
sanity-check some more header fields. The first 4 bytes of the file
should match the total size of the file. The width and height could also
be sanity-checked (this is part of how the id CIN demuxer detects a file).

Right now, the demuxer has 3 in 65536 chance of qualifying a given file.
That probability should be much lower. Please open an issue and assign
it to me. I think I can cover all the cases.
