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

At least as I expect it.

There are files with and without the execution flag that have this icon.

As I said it's an older version of Ubuntu which was just upgraded. The
last "apt-get update" and "apt-get dist-upgrade" was done yesterday.

I don't remember anymore but mostly I'm reporting a bug shortly after I
have encountered it.

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.
