Evolution doesn't recognize default browser selection

Description of Problem: Evolution doesn't recognize default browser selection
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fresh install of RH 8 w/ Evolution from CD's
2. change the default browser to any other browser (in my case, Opera) using 'Preferred Apps' under preferences -> extras
3. Evolution does not recognize or use default browser selection when clicking an html link in evolution. Nothing happens.
since evolution is a gnome 1 application it doesn't recognize the default
browser setting in gnome 2. The workaround is to edit your $HOME/.gnome/Gnome
file and replace 'default-show=gnome-moz-remote --newwin "%s"' with for example '
Havoc -- I really think we need this capplet to change the GNOME 1 default as
well similar to how we change the gtk+ 1.2 theme to match the gtk2 theme
