Sorry, I misunderstood what you were asking for when I reassigned this
to xdg.  But still it's not a bug in gvfs.  gvfs expects the mailto app
to handle the url.  It doesn't do any per application specialization
like xdg-email does, it just passes the url directly to icedove, so
icedove needs to be fixed to handle the attach parameter.
