Clicking on links works for me, but I don't recall exactly how I got it
to work.

I think it was either by messing with /etc/alternatives, or by firing up
Gnome in order to run it's control panel thingy to set the default mail
client (seems Thunderbird honors Gnome's control panel but not KDE's, or
something odd like that -- I just don't recall the details -- sorry).
