Most of this stuff is in the gnome control centre. From within

Thanks. That's what I was looking for, I guess it's not a path issue.
Here's the process listing I see:
baphomet:[/usr/home/acowell] while true ; do ps waux | egrep pdf | egrep
-v grep ; done
acowell 19942 0.0 0.4 2028 912 ? R 12:18 0:00 sh -c
Run by hand with single ticks around '/usr/bin/xpdf /tmp/...83.PDF', it
works just fine. Launched from evolution, though, xpdf doesn't pop up
and evidently the process immediately dies. I tried running a strace
-f, and just don't see it calling the shell or xpdf. The output is at
http://www.cowell.org/~andy/out.txt . There are two fork calls, but the
child in both just connects to a socket under /tmp/orbit? I'm not
familiar with gnome at all, so maybe I'm missing something obvious
here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm running 1.0.4. I upgraded it and a few other things, and broke my
xpdf for .pdf attachments. It appears to be called correctly, but is
called without an explicit path, so I think it's just a path issue.
However, I can't find where this setting is stored at. Any help?
