There might be an answer for your problem on my tips page
Don't know if this is specific to KDE though since I don't use Gnome.
Let me know if it helped.

I received a mail a couple of days ago from someone who read my tip and he wrote :

I just so happend to find your article on the
application/octet-stream
http://users.pandora.be/Ice9/Linux s...inux_tips.html


There's a "dirty" way to fix the problem.

According to http://www.dmvista.com/Resource/mime_test.html


The application/octet-stream can be various different URL's

So ... To "fix" the problem you could quite easily (It
worked here anyways)
point it to konqueror. (or whatever browser you use.)

I don't know if it's the right thing to do, but it works. I tried
just
deleting the .desktop file, but no go.
So, apparently, neither did the solution I provided work for him and he found another way around it.
