Hello, just chiming in to say that I have this same bug.  I found the 
report at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=547623 
through google.

I'm using Thunar as a replacement for Nautilus for most file operations 
because it is so much faster.  My system is Ubuntu 9.04, 64 bit.  I have 
noticed that if I tell a .doc file to open with OpenOffice, then other 
.txt files will also try to open in OpenOffice.  In Nautilus the files 
behave as expected, however.

Unlike the above posters I *do* have two copies of mimeinfo.cache and 
defaults.list (in home/amandav/.local/share/applications and 

Here are the results of the other two commands:
