Nevermind, I figured it out.  Apparently /usr/bin/xdg-email on my
system was some executable (not a link) that executed
chromium-browser.  Removing xdg-email and running update-alternatives
got me a working default mailto handler.

It took me a while to find the information - there didn't seem to be a
lot on setting up system defaults beyond places saying 'use
update-alternatives' - I wasn't able to find a list that said 'if you
want to change the default x program, you need to look at alternative
y'.  Is there such a list, for future reference?
