Bug#97499: double click on file in KDE

Hopefully I've sent this to the right place...
This has happened to me before. Basically, the cause is that KDE is sending
XMMS a url instead of a filename.
In other words, the file type mp3 is set to call: "xmms %u" instead of "xmms %f"
(Edit the filetype properties to fix it.)
IIRC, the 'find legacy applications' function is the cause of this. (A few
other filetypes are also linked in the wrong way, but I forget which.)
