Epiphany and opening documents in OO.o2

It seems I can't get Epiphany to open Word documents in OpenOffice.org2.
Clicking on a link results in a dialogue box asking me what to do, it
says clicking "Open" will open it using OpenOffice.org2 Writer. Nothing
happens though. I changed the default application for Word docs to
AbiWord and Epiphany is happily launching AbiWord with the document

Anyone else seeing the same problems? Any solutions around?

Oh yes, I have tried opening a Word document in OO.o2 through Nautilus
and that works just fine.

it doesn't weaken the cipher. ... It's better to be able to prove that
an attack won't work than to have to guess that it won't because it's
too much work.
