Description of Problem:
You have video/* associated with xamin in mailcap, so when a user changes the video/mpeg association in the gnome mime editor, it has no effect, unless they edit mailcap and rem out the video/* association.

After changing the mime type in the gnome mime editor for mpeg:
video/*; xanim %s
video/mpeg; gtv %s

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change mime type for video/mpeg to something other than xanim in gnome mime editor.
2. double click on a mpeg file, it still tries to use xanim because video/* matches before video mpeg

Actual Results:
Nothing changes because metamail finds the video/* association before the new video/mpeg one

Expected Results:
change of association for video/mpeg
