Interesting, this is happening with bash and so far lynx is the only program doing this. Bash did have a recent update and has quite the bug colony some of them old enough to be called features. The timer internal in bash is probably still not working after all of these years.

If it was built for the wrong architecture, it could cause problems, as the low level code will try and run it with /bin/sh if it doesn't start with a known prefix. All recognized binary formats have unique prefixes, and a prefix of "#!" indicates that a named interpreter, rather than the shell, is to be run.
