Description of problem:
Receive an xls attachment from someone in evolution and open office
does not appear as a "Open With..." choice.


This appeared as a different bug, but we have the new/updates
redhat-menus that is supposed to fix this and it's not fixed.

Desktop is GNOME desktop running fc3, fresh install.  User is a
nfs/nis user.  home directory is nfs mounted and was created probably
in the redhat-8.0 days.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Receive xls attachment in evolution
2.Click on attachment icon

Actual Results:  No openoffice.org choice, only Gnumeric

Expected Results:  In fc2 there are multiple choices including
openoffice.org and gnumeric.

This is working with fc3 updates or fc4.  Don't remember which fixed it.
