Thank you...as I thought, Email is already set to Thunderbird and
application/pdf is already set to Document Viewer.

1. But if I type

   xdg-open foobar.pdf

it opens GIMP (ie behaviour is false, but it's what the applications are
doing). BTW file -i correctly identifies PDF files as application/pdf

2. If I type

   xdg-open mailto:pe...@silmaril.ie

a Thunderbird Compose window opens (ie behaviour is correct, but all my
browsers fail to invoke it).

Is it possible that for [1] something is overriding the file identity?
