We could and should fix that by manually specifying mime prefs
in /usr/share/kde-settings/kde-profile/default/share/applications/mimeapps.list

and possibly provide a defaults.list for legacy apps not supporting
mimeapps.list (akin to fedora's/gnome's
default /usr/share/applications/defaults.list).

It's nice that kde "just works' and gets things right, but shoe-horning
other toolkits is (and will be) more work.
