According to
<http://www.gnome.org/learn/admin-guide/latest/mimetypes-database.html>
(found by googling update-mime-database), one should look for an offending
file in ~/.local/share/mime/packages, perhaps remove it, and run
"update-mime-database ~/.local/share".  See also the uninformative "man
update-mime-database" (found by looking at ~/.local/share/mime/globs).  I
think that just removing entries in globs might allow the entries to return
the next time an application adds a file to packages and runs
update-mime-database.
