I share your frustration.  I spent a long time trying to figure out how
to get this to work and eventually gave up and wrote a wrapper.
It takes a bit of configuration but I now have a "mimewrap" application
that does the osso_mime_set_cb thing and passes the arguments to a
specified application based on the file extension.  Seems to work fine
for feeding spreadsheets to gnumeric from the file manager.  I'd think
it should work for unzip as well although I'm not sure how you'd want
to specify where the unzipped contents should go.

And it's only 188 lines of C :-)

I've yet to contribute anything to the maemo world.  Where should
something like this go?  garage.maemo.org?
