I'm using Suse 10.0 and a fresh alpha of Wine.  It appears wine doesn't know
what application to send an html file to.

Here is the output when trying to launch an html file via wine:

wine dirhtml_help.html
wine: cannot determine executable type for L"Y

Here is the debug version:

WINEDEBUG=+exec wine start dirhtml_help.html
trace:exec:ShellExecuteExA 0x406cfe54
trace:exec:ShellExecuteExW32 mask=0x00000500 hwnd=(nil) verb=L"open"
