mimetype and mailcap



I have been having a problem with mimetypes and mailcap with Netscape.
For example, I have the following entries:

mailcap:

image/*; xv %s

mime.type:

image/gif                      gif             
image/ief                      ief             
mage/jpeg                     jpeg jpg jpe
image/tiff                     tiff tif        

Now I know that my preference file is being read and that some of the
mimetype/mailcap translations work because I have the Adobe Acrobat firing
up for pdf files.  Anytime I choose on an image file, it goes to the browser.
Any clues, suggestions?
