If Hugo's advice fails, get a copy of this file (by ftp if need be)
then run:  file land.it5

and then change the filetype.rules.conf to accomodate.

It sounds like you may have to allow exe in filetype, and then control 
the allows in filename.rules.conf, it might be enough to allow in filetype 
without changing filename, often you need to 'allow' in filetype but you 
can still deny  'exe'  in filename.
