I'd have thought it would be more sensible to make sure we only run .exe files 
if they are marked executable.  That way, whether we show the icon or not 
doesn't matter, and they behave the same way as scripts and normal binary 
files (well, scripts in particular, since exe files run under WINE on UNIX 

Although, of course, we have to do something different on Windows...
