Bug#526958: XDG_DATA_HOME works

I had this bug come up with epiphany when doing my UK Tax Return -
extremely annoying because that is a rather important PDF. At first, I
thought the problem was Gimp but then I found this bug and tested with
iceweasel which used DocumentViewer (evince) as it should.

/etc/gnome/defaults.list was correct (AFAICT):
$ grep pdf /etc/gnome/defaults.list
However, XDG_DATA_HOME was not set, only _DIRS:
$ printenv | grep XDG
Starting a new gnome-terminal, exporting the value:
$ export XDG_DATA_HOME=/usr/share/gnome
and then starting epiphany-browser from that terminal, the PDF opens in
Close all epiphany windows, start epiphany from the menu, the a PDF
opens in Gimp import again.
Close that window, start epiphany-browser from the terminal with
XDG_DATA_HOME exported, the PDF opens in evince.
I'll be putting XDG_DATA_HOME into ~/.bashrc but I've no idea why it
wasn't already set by something within epiphany/GNOME.
