*FBReader* supports opening its argument (as verified in xterm), but it
seems putting "Exec=FBReader %f" into the desktop file and doing 
- update-desktop-database
- update-mime-database /usr/share/mime 
will never ever make the file manager pass the file path that is to be
opened to FBReader.

Strange... is there some DBusism to watch out for here?
