I'm still working on a new installation. I'm trying with the latest
version of gnome (2.12.3)
I've read somewhere that starting from gtk 2.8 and gnome 2.8,
gnome is using only shared-mime-info, while before it used
gnome-mime-data 2.4.2.
Though, I'm not sure about its use of the icon-theme specification
by freedesktop.
I'm tracking down all the modifications to the files (well, I try)
at each installation.
If I get closer to the solution I'll write down a note on this thread.
