Yeah, I have a tendency to do that.  I was gone Friday-Monday so I was
digging myself out from under a mountain of mail most of yesterday. :)

Please do.  They understand the intricacies of their URI handling better
than I.

>From the Beagle standpoint of things, in most cases we use the GNOME URL
APIs to open documents(*), which goes through the URL handlers and MIME
type associations to determine how to open a file.  It's basically the
same as calling "gnome-open <url>".

Sometimes there are special cases, however.  The email URI scheme is
internal and special to evolution and no default GNOME desktop (that I'm
aware of) has handlers for it.  beagle-search calls "evolution <uri>"

(*) Actually we prefer the desktop-launch program if it's available for
cross-platform (GNOME apps in GNOME, KDE apps in KDE) compatibility, but
I believe only SUSE ships such a program.

It's done at open-time.

My only guess is that AbiWord has set itself as the default handler for
HTTP URIs, or possibly for HTML files.
