Public bug reported:

Steps to reproduce:
- Navigate to a folder that contains .h and .cpp files
- double-click on a .cpp file
- double-click on a .h file

both should be opened by default with the same application. I'd say it would 
make more sense that it was gedit rather than vim, given that gedit is the 
default for most other extensions that typically correspond  to other 
languages, e.g. .php, .java, etc. But anyway, .cpp and .h should have the same 

the default for .h files is to open in gedit; the default for .cpp files is to 
open in vim in a terminal. That's just stupid.
