Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 17:23:18 EDT
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Basically, the new mime system took away support for changing the default text
editor, and upstream gnome-default-applications-property didn't remove that tab
until after 2.8.0:
" 2004-11-26  Sebastien Bacher  <seb128@debian.org>

	* gnome-default-applications-properties.glade: Mask the "Text Editor" 
	tab since it's not used by the new mime system."

Fixed in FC-4 and forwards because that tab isn't visible.
