I noticed that TeXmacs- ships /usr/share/mime/types and 
similar files which are usually auto-generated by shared-mime-info.  Is 
this a bug in TeXmacs?

geda-gschem-1:1.8.1-1.fc18, geda-symbols-1:1.8.1-1.fc18, 
qelectrotech-0.30-0.4.svn1844.fc18 ship files in the 
/usr/share/mime/applications directory, e.g., 
/usr/share/mime/application/x-geda-schematic.xml.  This seems to run 
counter to the shared-mime-info specification
