To clarify, I am still running KDE but evolution wants to compose emails for 
me if I click an email link in firefox.
I closed KDE and started a gnome session andthe "gnome-control-center" opened 
as a blank window. There should be some way to set "mailto" in the KDE file 
associations, but I'm not seeing it.
