Bug#797485: mate-desktop-environment: mime types keep getting reset

Package: mate-desktop-environment
Version: 1.8.0+9
Severity: important

I have two office suites installed.
LibreO and XPS.

I click a word file to open it and WPS wants to open it but thats not what I
want.So I change the "open with" option.

When I open another word document the mime type resets itself and wants to open
with WPS office again.

These settings should apply for ALL files until I change them, not on a per-
file basis.
