Associaton configuration in Konqueror

Hello list,

i've tried to change the default player of some media files, and find
that there is a problem with the File Associations in Konqueror.

For example the default player for *.mp3 file is noatun, i move the
amarok up in the ``Configure file associations'' window and try to set
it as my default player for *.mp3 file, after confirm that, the noatun
is still the default player and i open the File Assciations window
again, there is nothing changed, the noatun is still on the top of the
list in Application Preference Order.

And that doesn't only happen to the *.mp3 file but also another files,
(e.g. *.png file could only be opend by Kuickshow but i can not chage
it to Kview) I can just not change anydefalut open method of any file.

I am using debian lenny, KDE's version is 3.5.8 and Konqueror's
version is 3.5.7 (before KDE update from 3.5.7 to 3.5.8, there has
been already this issue). I'm wondering if this just happens to debian
or maybe just me. 

Could anyone please give me some hints, thanks a lot.
