Based on bug #131162, I think it might be running a tiny instance of
AbiWord to try to display the ics file, rather than the correct ics
viewer component.

Please can you confirm this by typing "ps ax | grep abiword" (assuming
AbiWord isn't running separately).  If that doesn't show up, looking
through the output of "ps ax" may be able to help determine which
application is being run.

I am not authorised to access bug #131162 but you're right, removing
abiword fixes the problem. Though it's a poor workaround at best

[nim@rousalka ~]$ ps ax | grep AbiWord
 9266 ?        S      0:00 AbiWord-2.0
--oaf-activate-iid=OAFIID:GNOME_AbiWord_ControlFactory --oaf-ior-fd=53
 9306 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep AbiWord

I don't know why 131162 was marked as private, but it's similar to
this one.
 
Thanks for confirming this; it looks like there's a general problem
with component activation for attachments (launching the wrong one, or
none at all).  I'll look into it further...
Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2004-09-28 16:06:53 EDT
The particular abiword/ics interaction seems to be fixed now so I'm
closing the bug
Comment 6 Dave Malcolm 2004-09-28 16:11:03 EDT
This would have been fixed with gnome-vfs2-2.8.0, I believe; sorry not
to have informed you, and thanks for closing the bug.
