[kde] OOo file associations missing in KDE

Description of problem:
I'm not sure about GNOME, but in KDE 3.3, none of the OOo file types
are associated with any program. On a fresh install of FC3, when I
double-click on a *.sxw file (for example), I get the standard KDE
"open with..." dialog. However, strangely, there's no "remember
application association" checkbox, so I was forced to either select
OpenOffice from the dialog every time, or I had to manually associate
the file types in the KDE control center. Initially, when I browsed a
file manager window, all OOo documents were listed as "Unknown" type.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kde-3.3.1-1 and openoffice.org-1.1.2-11.5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC3
2. Launch (attempt) OpenOffice.org by double-clicking an existing document
3. Select the program from the subsequent dialog (notice the lack of
"remember application association" checkbox)
4. Choose appropriate OOo component
Actual Results: The files open fine after either choosing the proper
application or setting the file association.
Expected Results: The file association should have been set without
manual user intervention.
This was a fresh install of FC3.
I copied the following files (from another Linux install) to
That has fixed the openoffice associations.
