Re: Opening files from file-roller

* the file "/usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.mime" describes postscript as
"ps" extension, and not "PS"

* nautilus uses content type detection for unknown mime-type. 

* file-roller would have to unzip the package and probe for the mime-
type, as "PS" is not a registered extension. bug by design.

* file a bug report against gnome-mime-data or file-roller ?
