libgnomevfs gnome_url_show api does'nt work on ubuntu

We are observing this problem while using gnome. This problem is observed in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) as well as in sles11 RC1 x86_64.

gnome_url_show api is supposed to open a file with an associated application. When we change the associated application , this doesn't open with the new application associated for the file , instead always uses gedit.

How to reproduce:
In the GUI set preference for file testcase.txt to some thing other than gedit and run this program
#include <stdio.h>
#include <dlfcn.h>

typedef int gboolean;

gboolean (*gnome_url_show) (const char *url, void **error);

int main()

 void *gnome_handle;
 void *vfs_handle;
 gboolean (*gnome_vfs_init) (void);
 vfs_handle = dlopen("", RTLD_LAZY);
 if(vfs_handle == NULL)
     printf("\n cannot load libgnomevfs");
     return 0;

 gnome_vfs_init = dlsym(vfs_handle, "gnome_vfs_init");

 if(gnome_vfs_init == NULL)
    printf("\n gnome_vfs_init is NULL ");
    return 0;
 gnome_handle = dlopen("", RTLD_LAZY);
 if(gnome_handle == NULL)
     printf("\n cannot load ");
     return 0;

 gnome_url_show = dlsym(gnome_handle, "gnome_url_show");
 if(gnome_url_show == NULL)
    printf("\n gnome_url_show is null ");
    return 0;

 printf("\n AFter showing console");
 return 0 ;

It still opens in gedit.

Can you please let us know your observation on how to get this addressed. Or help us to direct the mail to the correct mailing list
