Just out of curiousity, but OT - I am on gnome 2.14, but applies to all
recent versions I have run.

Where do I go (or what xml file) do I edit to set the applications that
show up after a right click..   It is definitely not in the "preferred
applications" section that only has email/web, and I cannot find it
anywhere.  And I assume that is the same place for example:

to tell a double click to start mplayer vs. totem for .mpg, etc...
