See update-desktop-database(1) for more info on what generates these. > All working fine (but of course I have no idea what random application > was the cause). Many applications make a land-grab for their pet MIME > media-type and happily stomp on the associations that a user prefers. Apps list their supported mime types in their .desktop file. That's how file managers get a reasonable list of apps that support a given file. So gimp gets associated with application/pdf since gimp's .desktop file indicates that it can handle PDFs. See /usr/share/applications/gimp.desktop, at the bottom. In an E session, does your env have XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=enlightenment? If not, xdg-open may be falling back to a handler that doesn't pick up your Enlightenment config.
