[gnome-bluetooth] 'Send to Bluetooth' menu option missing if filetype not recognised

   On FC3 (Gnome 2.8) I've noticed that the 'Send to Bluetooth' menu option 
for a file is missing (I think you see it briefly then it goes away!) when a 
file is of an unrecognised type.

   In this case, *./sis is not recognised, which is a bit irritating as it 
means I have to use obex_push to send apps. to my phone (and this only 
sometimes works as it seems to fight with gnome-obex-server).

   Any work-arounds?  I'd be happy to add a fake MIME type for .sis, but I've 
tried and failed (as Gnome 2.8 has made it particularly difficult).
