Well, there's where you're likely wrong.  Gnome-vfs handles this stuff,
but you apparently missed the shared-mime-info package.

Add the following, logout and log back in.  Things should work

...and the hicolor-icon-theme is another one that gets overlooked, but 
there's at least one package that will complain if you're missing this
(unlike shared-mime-info).

Some people seem to be trying to use the 2.4.x module list to build
with, which will mess ya up because some of the modules have been rolled
into other packages now (notably, bonobo-activation).  Until the book
gets updated, follow the list at the following URL with a little common
sense and you'll be fine:

Render, Xrender, and Xfs can be ignored if you have XFree86 4.3.0 or
newer and yes, neither hicolor-icon-theme nor shared-mime-info are
currently listed there.
