#5050 new bug

Left over filetype after removing an app

Description

This is hrev34203.

I installed BePodder, which messed up networking related things...
Removing it left application/x-vnd.xed.bepodder which is displayed in FileTypes preferences' panel "File | Application Types". The BePodder binary is already gone from the system. Now the bug:

When moving from one entry in the list of that panel to the next, the "Information" and "Version" boxes to the right display the related info. When you reach the removed app (BePodder), only "Name" and "Signature" is updated, the rest of the info is still from the previous entry.

Shouldn't the button "Remove Uninstalled" remove the orphaned BePodder mime type? It doesn't.

I attached x-vnd.xed.bepodder so anyone can put it into ~/config/settings/beos_mime/application/ for quick testing.

BePodder mime type for testing

Correction: The "Remove" button does work. I once more fell in Trash's trap... BePodder was still in there. After emptying it, it worked. Which makes sense, because the mime type could still be needed should you decide to restore the app.

The bug with the display of wrong info still stands, of course.
