gnus opening attachments

At some point, attachment opening in gnus seems to have got messed up. Symptoms very similar to this old thread on fedora-user.

/etc/mailcap is:

application/pdf; /usr/bin/okular %s
application/*; /usr/bin/xdg-open %s

xdg-open works fine from the command line, but does not in gnus.

PDF attachments work fine. Others (.doc, .xls .odt etc) do not.

If I view an attachement interactively (ie press 'v'), if I enter xdg-open, it does not work. If I enter 'libreoffice' it works fine.

It seems the attachment isn't being copied to /tmp/ before the call to xdg-open.

I'm using Gnus 0.17

Any idea how to diagnose the problem further?
