The rule is clear by now: we should do not install mimetypes 
from other packages than kdelibs. To avoid this kind of problem, and to
let KDE recognize the files you get by mail even if you don't have the right
KDE package or application installed. (You know that, but others might not

You can't just copy .desktop files around, you would need to copy all
the translations from desktop_kdemultimedia.po to desktop_kdelibs.po
in each and every language, otherwise the nightly script ("scripty") will
just remove your copied translations from the kdelibs .desktop file.

I think this is something for trunk only, unless someone writes the script
to move the translations around...
