If I am not mistaken, this is a duplicate of bug #193582 and/or bug #186241.
Ultimately, it's caused by a bug in shared-mime-info,
(http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6577) which is fixed in CVS but not
in any released version.
Comment 2 Trever Adams 2006-06-24 14:36:35 EDT
This is one of those examples where "fixed in CVS" is indeed not a good answer.
This has been around for about 5 months in rawhide/FC5 if I am not mistaken. I
am not reporting it because it is beginning to make me very frustrated. I have
pasted a link to an interesting and relevant article.
