Bug#968044: Choosing 'neomutt' as preferred mail reader silendly sends empty mails

Package: libexo-1-0
Version: 0.12.4-1
Severity: important


in the xfce "Preferred Applications" dialog, I chose neomutt as the
preferred mail reader. It seems to mean 'neomutt "%s"'.

Try running 'neomutt test@example.org' in the application run dialog of
xfce, and you'll find that nothing seems to happen, but you just sent an
empty email to test@example.org.

I manually changed the mail reader to:

  x-terminal-emulator -e 'neomutt "%s"'

and now it all works fine, but meanwhile the empty mails I, curiously and
without noticing, accidentally sent to lists for clicking on the wrong
links, will be archived forever by the Internet.

Unfortunately, I could not find where the 'neomutt "%s"' default comes
