missing associations for remote Recent Documents

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

It is similar to bug #211743, yet it affects only some remote files.

Having opened a local "any file" I get a nice "any file" item at the top of Places | Recent Documents.
If the file is located on a SMB server (say: Windows 2003), the item in Recent Docs is "smb:any%20file"** and the story begins, ie. the associations get lost:

*.txt, *.jpg, *.png -- OK.

*.odt files are launched with File Roller (instead of OOo). If I remove their associations with "File Roller" and "Mounting archive", the file opens fine. Having "File Roller" back in associations (NOT as default one!) I get files opened with it.

*.pdf and *.od[gs] are opened in gedit, although there is NO such association.

** As for the file names: it is confusing for anybody using more than ASCII. Is it easy to guess, that "%C5%A0%C5%A4%C5%98%C4%82%C5%87%C4%9E%C4%9A" is just "ŠŤŘĂŇĞĚ" ?
