You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: f-spot

If Thunderbird is your default mail handler, and you want to send an
e-mail from within f-spot, the message gets created, but the pictures do
not get attached.

To solve this problem, you can change the gconf value of "/desktop/gnome
/url-handlers/mailto/command" from "/usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird
"%s"" to simply "thunderbird %s".

However, that is not a good solution either, because as soon as you
launch thunderbird again, it will complain about not being the default
mailto handler anymore. If you then agree to make Thunderbird the
default e-mail handler, the gconf value will be reverted and you won't
be able to send e-mails using f-spot anymore...

This boils down to the question of whether f-spot or thunderbird are
right about the gconf syntax, and I have no idea about that.
