It's a debugging print. it will be removed in future releases.

The kernel can look at the first few bytes in a file to decide
what interpreter to run on it: unfortunately the number of bytes it uses
is not enough to distinguish a .net program and a msdos/windows program
to be run with wine, so a wrapper needs to be used. Oh, and someone
needs to write it, hint, hint :-)
