This actually makes a strange sort of sense (but will need to be
addressed).  Because the OpenDocument (.odt, etc) files are actually a
bunch of xml (and other bits) wrapped in a dot-zip file, and the mime
type handler for Gnome sniffs the file to see what sort of file it is,
it's understandable that Nautilus (et al) would pick this up as a
archive style file (and want to open it in file-roller).

Caolan, do you need someone to file a bug report for this, or have you
got it listed already?
