I'm not sure if this is really a bug or my newbie misconfiguration.

This is a real bug. It's a problem in the gnome-vfs application database.

The gnome-vfs.applications file contains information about how to deal with various programs. A while back, we changed the entry for the Gimp to indicate that it can handle http URLs.

This is wrong in the gnome-vfs 1.0.1 release and fixed in HEAD of gnome-vfs, but it's not clear when there will be a gnome-vfs 1.0.2 release, because there are other untested changes in HEAD that might not be ready for release.

A workaround is to correct this in your local copy of gnome-
