I had been pointed by some gnome guru to a gconf section with path /desktop/gnome/applications/browser which contains obvious entries: exec (string), needs_term (bool) and nremote (bool).  You can use gconf-editor to change this values arbitrary outside the GNOME session.  For example, I can call gconf-editor sitting under CDE on Solaris.  It's a pity balsa seems does not use this values (on GNOME 2.0 for Solaris at least): clicking on hyper-links in balsa message body causes inevitable Netscape 4.7 run instead of pointed opera or mozilla_fb.
It seems balsa developers/supporters/adv.users don't track this problem because I asked such question several months ago and nobody answer.  It seems for me Sun's GNOME 2.0 differs from Linux version, so Linux users don't see the problem at all.
