file(1) command very slow

Running the file(1) command on a 7 MB text file takes much longer in
10.2 than in 10.1.


# ll /tmp/x6
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  7384414 Sep  5 10:30 /tmp/x6
# file /tmp/x6
/tmp/x6: ASCII text
file /tmp/x6  26.12s user 0.00s system 99% cpu 26.237 total

I have this on all my machines since installing 10.2.

Any ideas on what is wrong?
