Unfortunately I haven't found a way to assign a *lower* priority so far.

So I think I have to further investigate what winemenubuilder exactly
does, and if we can prevent creation of these .desktop files without
breaking anything else.

Good, so I assume nothing related changed recently. Instead we are
working on an issue that exists since years (I observed it once or
twice, but could never reproduce till now).

These common mime types might also be affected:

Thanks in advance. Since this is a new topic for me, I'd hope to see my
assumptions confirmed. I expect it to break for you after "wineboot &&
winecfg" (or whatever is necessary to trigger the creation of the
.desktop files). All above mentioned types should be affected, unless
you have them in your mimeapps.list.
