Downloading gmail attachment: The "Do this automatically for those files ince now" doesn't work.

When I press "Download" into a Gmail powerpoint attachment I have the option to "Open with OpenOffice" or "Save file". I choose to "Open with OpenOffice" and *switch-on the check-box "Do this automatically for these files since now"* so next time the powerpoint opens automatically.

No luck at the moment. The dialog "Opening *pss" always appears asking me whether to open it or save it. The check-box option is ignored.
