	When I had similar  problems clicking on URL's in evolution
	and firefox doing zip, I finally found something like a 
	'gnome control center' sub-application that I had to toggle
	to allow the click to spawn firegox.

	I've been wedged in trying to keep my ports current here--
	which is common--so I'm missing lots of things-Gnome as well
	as evolution, epiphany (or "dbus").  I'll check on my Ubuntu 
	server and see if I make any notes on this.
