Office 2003 messes with mime type in Debian Lenny


I have installed Office 2003 on my Debian Lenny, and since then all my office files are shown as "unkown type" ("type inconnu" in french) in nautilus. This means that nothing happens on double-click, and no icons. As soon as I uninstall Office 2003, everyting goes back to normal, ie is used on a double-click, and the files are shown to be "Office files". I also want to say this was working perfectly fine with Ubuntu.

Do you know what I can do to have the right behaviour ? I already tested all the combinations in the configuration/association tab in Crossover.
