[Bug 1216788] Re: Files previously shown with a gear icon (like #!/usr/bin/python) are now shown as text files


if you double click on the file, does it open like normal?

are there ANY executable files that show the icon?

where's the upstream link to this hint you got?

what version of 14.10? is it an alpha? beta? daily image?

what versions did this last work with?

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 dev with shared-mime-info 1.1-0ubuntu4. For a few days after upgrading the system I have noticed that python-files aren't shown as executable files anymore. I have already opened a bug report on upstream for this: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68494
  But I'm not sure if this is really a bug in shared-mime-info because after downgrading shared-mime-info, PCManFM and libfm to the versions from Ubuntu 13.04 (libfm-data, libfm-gtk-bin, libfm-gtk-data, libfm-gtk3, libfm3, pcmanfm, shared-mime-info) and rebooting the system the problem still exists.
