The FileNotFoundErrors quote the path twice:
    Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Jul 31 2011, 19:30:53) 
    >>> path = "/foo/bar"
    >>> print "Path '%s' may not exist" % repr(path)
    Path ''/foo/bar'' may not exist

The ValueError error message isn't grammatically correct and doesn't account for the possibility that the path is a directory (consider the case of a Unix system where the GUI file manager has been uninstalled; directories would then fail to open). May I suggest my original message?: "No application is associated with files/directories of the given type"
