This can be fixed by limiting the search for "-*-" with some reasonable value,
e.g. modifying `set-auto-mode-1' to use: `(min (line-end-position) 1024)'.

Another solution is to add file extensions of binary image formats to
`inhibit-first-line-modes-regexps' or `inhibit-first-line-modes-suffixes'.
But a list of image formats supported by ImageMagick is too long:
(length (imagemagick-types)) => 206.  Perhaps this is not a problem.
