I thought they do use the x-scheme-handler settings.

Thanks for the pointer, it lead me in the right direction. It seems
that gnome has a different store for such settings:

Evo is a Gnome application, so generally speaking KDE settings don't
affect it. This is also (indirectly) why there's so much hassle about
getting the gnome-keyring to work under KDE.

That makes sense. However, I had expected them to use the same config
store, since xdg-mime was convinced that the settings were correct.

The irony is that the XDG stuff is designed precisely to smooth over the
differences between desktop environments. I'm not sure why it doesn't in
this case.

Indeed :-)

I think the xdg-mime script provides a common interface for querying
and setting preferences accross DEs. However, it does not provide a
unified store - or at least that's what my experience seems to
