No, this is not a Windows executable. The .exe naming convention is used
for installable MathLink programs (which is exactly what XML.exe is). See
the last paragraph of section 2.12.2 in the 4.2 book, 2.13.2 in the 5.0
book for information about this naming convention.
This would be happening as a side effect of your attempt to import some
kind of XML file or expression. The first step is to determine whether
this happens for every XML expression, or just some particular one (e.g.
does something like ImportString["<mytag/>", "XML"] cause the error). With
that information, Wolfram Research Technical Support will probably be able
to help you out.
Just a thought...if the error happens with even the simplest of inputs, you
might try replacing the XML.exe file in the above-named path with the one
found on the CD in SystemFiles/Converters/Binaries/Linux. I really don't
know whether this would work or not, but it might, and it's easy enough to
