Thanks for the pointer.  It didn't start happening yesterday, but I
thought I also saw it with a fresh build, but maybe I was imaging things.

Maybe mailcap-mime-data should have an implicit USER-SET/PRIORITY flag
that is added to entries read from user-mailcaps.  These could then be
preferred by `mailcap-viewer-lessp'.  Would that solution work?

IMO it's extremely annoying.  Doc-view is nice and all, but it's not fast
enough for being the default viewer (initial load is 5s of seconds
sampling typical pdfs from the last couple of days, zoom and scrolling is
very slow).

For now I'll eradicate doc-view from mailcap-mime-data manually.
