I'm pretty sure this is due to Internet Config, the control panel that
manages file helpers (among other things). Any application that calls
Internet Config to handle URLs should exhibit the exact same behavior.
Remember that the MacOS 9.x "Multiple User" extension is NOT intended
to be secure. Anyone with physical access to the Mac can use any file
or application with a few minutes of work (at most). This is BY DESIGN.
