Public bug reported:

Affects: evince (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Opening a file of MIME type 'application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text'
with extension '.odt' in evince gives an error message and the document
fails to be displayed. The error message is as follows:

"Unable to open document
Unhandled MIME type: 'application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text' "

Evince is currently set as the default handler for OpenDocument files,
but it can't open them due to this issue...

Package version evince 0.5.2-0ubuntu1, Dapper latest.
