Zim follows the XDG spec, so behavior should be the same as XFCE. The
reference application to test is "xdg-open". This is a commandline tool to
open a file according to mimetype.

However fixing in zim is easy, just right-click on the link and go to the
"open with" menu. There is a menu item to change the default.
