Nautilus "Open with Other Application..." Dialog box has random, multiple entries

Bug #290315 reported by lunomad on 2008-10-28
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Intrepid Ibex Full Updates
To recreate bug in Nautilus:

Right-click on any file
Choose "Open with Other Application..." from the context menu

Please see the attached screenshot showing two problems in the "Open With" dialog box:
1. The list of programs appears to be randomly distributed--should be alphabetized.
2. Many (actually most) programs appear two or more times in the list. Okular appears 6 times.

I assumed that this would have been reported already, but I tried like heck to find a similar bug report before reporting. If this is a duplicate, can you mark it as such so that I can follow its development?
