[CentOS] mime-type change?

I have a recently (last Friday) updated CentOS 4.5 desktop running OOo 2.2
that, since this morning, displays OpenOffice .odt files as
application:x-java-archives and has replaced the open office icon on my
desktop with the java icon for these files.  I have looked in both:

/usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.mime

and

/usr/share/mime-info/file-roller.mime

And cannot see any reference to OpenOffice v2 document types at all, or
any relation between x-java-archives and odt extensions.  What I find
instead is this in /usr/share/mime-info/gnome-vfs.mime:

--->

# OpenOffice 6.x document types
application/vnd.sun.xml.calc
  ext: sxc
application/vnd.sun.xml.calc.template
  ext: stc
application/vnd.sun.xml.draw
  ext: sxd
application/vnd.sun.xml.draw.template
  ext: std
application/vnd.sun.xml.impress
  ext: sxi
application/vnd.sun.xml.impress.template
  ext: sti
application/vnd.sun.xml.math
  ext: sxm
application/vnd.sun.xml.writer
  ext: sxw
application/vnd.sun.xml.writer.global
  ext: sxg
application/vnd.sun.xml.writer.template
  ext: stw

...

application/x-java-archive
  ext: jar ear war

<---

The 6.0 makes no sense to me at all, but as it is only a comment it does
not harm I guess.  My questions are:  Where are the odt and similar
OpenOffice v2 mime-types cataloged and why are they now associated with
Java Archives?

I had OOo2 documents presented by OOo icons earlier today, the change only
appeared to happen when I moved some OOo documents off of my desktop and
into another folder.

Thanks,
