User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:

Please note: the component is not correct - I did not find the correct
component and as it is related, I just put it in here.

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Actual Results:

missing application/ mime-type classifier.

The desktop patch (gnumeric-1.2.13-desktop.patch) in the srpm is
wrong.  Please add "application/" before "x-dos_ms_excel" in the patch.

The same mimetype is also present in gnumeric.keys.in, but the desktop
patch removes its use, so...
