We should really try to fix the OLE mime detection stuff instead of
trying ugly workarounds (disabling sniffing, that is). The problem seems
to be that the "subtypes" also match the OLE container type. This
problem is known and Christophe Fergeau seems to have fixed xdgmime [1].
Maybe you could try out whether xdgmime HEAD/gnome-vfs works for you.
You may have to reimport xdgmime into gnome-vfs/libgnomevfs to make it
work. I'm very much willing to help you if you need any support.
