There's a thread on gnus.general about this -- lots of people are
having trouble getting Gnus to respect view-part-externally. I used to
only have trouble with PDFs, but I follow Gnus git, and now I have
trouble with most file formats. Lars identified weirdness in the
function `gnus-mime-view-part-externally', but no one's really tackled
it yet. I tried edebugging the function and following it a few times,
and it totally confused me.
