Public bug reported:

Test Case
1. Create a text file foo.txt
2. Open your file browser (nautilus) and right-click on the file.
3. Select Open Application With
4. In the dialog, click Show All Applications

There are duplicates for at least
Archive Manager
Files (3 versions!)
Text Editor (I see this when I right-click on something that isn't a text file)

Other Info
This is triggered by:
1. The system shows apps with NoDisplay=true. This is a useful feature because 
it allows for a vim.desktop to be able to open files without cluttering the 
Activities Overview (but that's a different topic. See Debian 879157)

2. We specifically added compatibility .desktop file for upgraders for
several main apps. The .desktop files were renamed upstream for better
compatibility with Flatpak. (AppStream recommends the reverse-domain
org.gnome.gedit.desktop style too).

Seb suggested this issue can be fixed with a blacklist in gtk.
