Strange as it is, Marius Gedminas posted a message that indirectly answers
your question.  Your .mc/bindings file has an ugly, badly conceived hack
that needs to be removed.  The rule starting with "type/executable" should
not be there - mc knows better how to execute executable files.

I'm sure you didn't put those lines there.  Unfortunalely, mc copies 
whole files to your local directory to let you edit just one line.  
Checking for file format is done only in exceptional cases, when somebody 
bothered to implement it.  So, if you were upgrading from mc older than 
3.0 (very unlikely), you would be warned.
