I'm sorry, it's NOT rubbish. there is a post in a newsgroup about it as well. 
If i select Firefox and Thunderbird, or Firefox and Kmail as defaults, then 
Mailto links DO NOT WORK. If I select KMail and Konqueror as default then 
Mailto links DO work. A BUG or a deficiency. Just as in Ubuntu, you CANNOT 
change the "right-click, send to" mail client from Evolution.
