Good news: the xdg-utils itself is not broken.

Bad news: SFOS uses mer-core provided xdg-utils which has a patch for xdg-open to call lca-tool (https://git.merproject.org/mer-core/libcontentaction) before xdg-open itself takes any action. The lca-tool itself only supports default.lists and not mimeapps.lists (will create a bug about it).

Anyway there was a bug (https://bugs.merproject.org/show_bug.cgi?id=971) which got fixed in May 2015 and "broke" reading of user defined mimeapps.lists as it's not supported by lca-tool.

Workaround: Until lca-tool supports mimeapps.lists, use default.lists instead.
