executing .bat & .cmd files with 1.7

I've just upgraded to 1.7 (from 1.5) and ever since I did, .bat and
.cmd files are no longer automagically executed when I invoke them
without their extension: i.e., it used to be that invoking xyz in bash
would execute xyz.bat or xyz.cmd if it happened to be in my path.

Is this a new feature of 1.7, or something is wrong with my setup? In
either case, is there some way I can get it back?
