Can't open https or mailto links with gnome-open

Description of problem:
If I try to run gnome-open on an https location, it fails:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Type gnome-open https://bugzilla.redhat.com
Actual Results: Error showing url: There was an error launching the
default action command associated with this location.
Expected Results: Mozilla should open https://bugzilla.redhat.com
The only web browser installed is mozilla-1.7.2-0.3.0
And same thing for mailto: links, with evolution-126.96.36.199-1 as only
After re-setting my prefered mailer from "evolution-1.6 %s" (which was
the mistaken default) to "evolution %s", I can open mailto: links.
And I manager to work-around the https: bug by doing:
ln -s /usr/bin/mozilla /usr/bin/epiphany
It seems that epiphany is configured as the default handler for https
locations, even though I've never installed it...
Things that are broken now in gconf://desktop/gnome/url-handlers :
about/command (stuck as epiphany)
https/command (stuck as epiphany)
mailto/command (stuck as evolution-1.6)
unknown/unknown (stuck as epiphany)
