ST3 Find in files incorrectly identifying as binary n result

ST3 Find in files incorrectly identifying as binary n result

sublime-text_build-3047_i386 @ Debian Wheezy 7.0

I was just about to put sublime text to work when I find out that its incorrectly identifying bash scripts as binary. I'm guessing the logic is if its excutable bit is set and it has no file extension then its assumed binary. Unfortunately a lot of text files I need to search within meets that definition.

Simple example, configure files in building from source on linux

Searching 15 files for "curl"

/opt/spksrc/cross/transmission/work/curl-7.30.0/configure:
<binary>

/opt/spksrc/cross/transmission/work-88f6281/curl-7.30.0/configure:
<binary>

/opt/spksrc/cross/transmission/work-88f6281/transmission-2.81/configure:
<binary>

2728 matches across 3 files


For *Nix systems this is pretty handicapping. Suggestions, confirmations, or condolences welcome.
