When I clicked on a mailto URI in Chromium, to my surprise Icedove was 
started. Yes, it's installed, but only as a fallback, normally I use KMail. 
And KMail is selected in System Settings > Default Applications > Email 

The unwanted invocation of Icedoce apparently goes happens through xdg-email 
and kde-open5. The latter presumably uses what it finds in /etc/mailcap. Now, 
I figured out that I can affect the precendences with some magic entries in /
etc/mailcap.order. But I really think this should not be necessary.

Is this the expected behavior? A bug? What to do about it, apart from 
uninstalling Icedove or editing mailcap.order?
