Looks pretty good. You're leaking new_mime_type though.

I'm not 100% sure about the file change though. Removing + adding will 
lose the state of any pages that still exist after the change. Think about 
a page that lets you change a file (e.g. desktop file property page). When 
it rewrites the file Nautilus is gonna catch change events before it's 
fully written, and it may potentially exist as a different type for a 
while, which means the component doing the change will be destroyed.

I guess if we make sure all property pages modify files atomically (write 
to new file + rename over original when done) it'll be ok.

Anyway. Please check in after you've freed new_mime_type. We'll look at 
the rest later.
