This is a silly bug in xdg-mime.  Since none of the files in /usr/bin
have an extension, xdg-mime tries to sniff each one of them to figure
out the MIME type.  It should look in the struct stat and see that they
are executable; then it can automatically say "this is an executable".

This won't give you exact icons for executable shell scripts and such,
but you don't need those anyway.  You just care that double-clicking on
the file will execute it.
