Fix for 1.1.0 rc1 - output from git diff

In Xubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) xdg-email fails and presents an error dialog stating 'Unable to detect the URI-scheme of "mailto:".'.

I observed this problem when using "Simple Scan" in this environment.

The problem is that exo-open does not support the mailto URI.

Versions this problem occurs in

Xubuntu 13.04 uses version 1.0.2 of xdg-utils.

This problem also occurs in 1.1.0 rc1 of xdg-utils.

How to reproduce

Run xdg-email from command line in Xubuntu 13.04.


I will attach canidate patches for 1.1.0 rc1 and 1.0.2.
