I also noticed this regularly before I disabled the Strigi file indexer
which slowed my whole system to a crawl. This slow-down seemed to cause
some dbus calls to time out. Most of the time, after clicking on a URL,
I got an error message that launching something-or-other failed, but
after some time the URL was still opened with the correct application.
