Yeah, this is a real problem because the VFS systems are totally
separate.  I'm not sure there's a good way to fix this.

We ran into this problem with Novell Linux Desktop and SUSE, so to solve
this we created a shell script called "desktop-launch" and based on
which desktop you're running, it'll pretty much do the right thing when
you pass URIs or file names into it.  Fredrik checked support in for
this the other day, but it's only in CVS and not in 0.0.12.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any other distribution which does
something like this, so it can't be solved generally right now.  If
you're not running SUSE or NLD, you'll need to hack the Tile.cs for now
like you did.
