Throwing out a possibility (because I've seen this trip up programs
before) is one of those associations a system-wide one and the other a
per-user one, by any chance?

Windows 7 allows for two levels of associations, so non-privileged
users can set file-type associations for themselves. I've seen
programs get confused about whether an association existed when they
were looking for one kind but only the other existed.

So if the system has a second user, which program is associated with
PDFs on that profile?
