I can't tell you what file is producing that error; I don't know exactly
what's going on inside your system as your window manager is starting
up. However, I can tell you about MIME type application/octet-stream.
It's a catch-all data type where the real data type hasn't been
otherwise specified; basically, it's raw binary stuff. Microsoft
applications have a terrible habit of sending out e-mail attachments
with that MIME type specified. That company has never believed in
genuine data-typing, and it counts on conveying its halfassed sort of
data-type information embedded into filename extensions.
Anyhow, the upshot of that is that whatever application you associate
with that MIME type had better be able to take appropriate precautions,
since the contents in question could be just about anything.
More immediately relevant to your problem, I found the following while
writing this e-mail, and it might be the solution you're looking for:
