Sorry for the late reply.  gnome-list has just gotten too much
for me to watch lately.

This happens when MIME types aren't working correctly on your
system.  Run this command:

gnomevfs-ls /usr/share/gnome/help/user-guide/C/

(Replace /usr with your installation prefix as neceassary.)
If the files aren't being reported as text/xml, then Yelp
will think it doesn't know how to read them, and will call
whatever external program is registered for that MIME type.

Later versions of Yelp (2.14 and up, I think) also allow
application/xml and application/docbook+xml.  We had some
