Umpf, I have removed the x-scheme-handler/http and x-scheme-handler/https
ffrom the chromium-browser.desktop and called update-desktop-database,
now midori starts.

Then I edited midori.desktop, now epiphany-browser starts,
where does that end???

I checked xdg-open, and it calls gvfs-open, which in turn (checking the
sources) calls
from gio/gappinfo.h which belongs to libglib2.0-dev. There I tried
to read the code but gave up.

I suggest to raise the severity to serious, and reassign to libglib2.0*whatever*.
