Er, no didn't know about that setting, but why is it defaulting to
Nautilus in the first place.  Why not Thunar, which is what it what it
should be for an XFCE desktop?

There are lot of cases like this, but I hadn't filed bugs yet because I
know mime-types stuff was in flux due to other bugs.

Since it sounds like that isn't the case now, I'll report on a
case-by-case basis, but I'm wondering if there couldn't be a more
organized approach than stumbling across each specific case.
