mysterious bash problem

On one NT host where I don't know who fiddled with what happens
the following:

Let foo be a valid shell script (starting with a ":" in the first line, BTW):

bash$ foo


bash.exe: ./foo: (null)


bash$ bash foo

results in normal execution of the script

this doesn't happen with all scripts, just some.

ls -l gives -rw-r--r-- in all cases

What the hell is going on here?
