Question delete "open with" program association XFCE


I'm using Slackware 10.2 with XCFE4.

With xffm I can easily add an application to the context menu for opening files with a special extension.

Now I have several programs associated to one extension and like to remove some of them.

I think for all users (default) the associations are stored in /usr/share/xfce4/mime/applications.xml but I do not know where the user defined associations are stored in.

Is there any software to configure this associations?
Where are the associations stored in?

Thanks for your help.

Not having used xfce much, all I can say is try associating yet another application and give it a unique name like open with fubar. Now grep around ih the xfce4 directory for fubar and see what configuration files come up...
