There is a setting in the installer that selects the mode:
	- don't touch file associations
	- only add new ones
	- rewrite all file associations
depending on that ps_view is registered
	- to nothing
	- only to ps/pdf if they do not have a association by now
	- to both
That is the intended behaviour (and the one I have seen on my installation
boxes). If you saw something different/wrong, please let us know.

Best wishes

A puddle which is hidden under a pivoted paving stone. You only know
it's there when you step on the paving stone and the puddle shoots up
your leg.
