no application associated for rpm fter upgrade to Mandrake 10

Hi everyone,

After an upgrade Mandrake 9.2 / Mandrake 10 on my friend's computer, most of the things went fine. As I wanted to install a brand new Wine rpm, I just downloaded it from Wine website, and clicked on it.
I was surprised to see the message "no application associated " to the rpm extension.
Checking properties confirmed it.
The rpm program is however installed on this PC and working well using it manually, and using the Mandrake GUI.

So my questions are :
- Is it a know bug or a glitch ?
- What do I have to put on "Choose an application ..." for the association ? rpm ? urpmi ?

Last information, this was perfectly working before upgrading ...

Any hints or information welcome ;-)
