I see the same annoying thing here. I hope it's just a temporary bug,
but there is an easy workaround using gnome's gconf-editor utility.
Start gconf-editor and navigate to desktop::gnome::applications::browser
on the left side, and on the right side you should find an item named
'exec'. Double-click on 'exec' and change the value to seamonkey.
