Thanks.  I found the culprit, it's this change:

  2010-11-10  Lars Magne Ingebrigtsen  <address@hidden>

          * net/browse-url.el (browse-url-browser-function): Change the
          default to use `browse-url-mail' on mailto: URLs.

Lars, what was the rationale for that change?  It breaks
report-emacs-bug, which uses the mailto: URLs.  `browse-url-mail'
simply uses Emacs to compose a mail message, which is of course
useless when browse-url is called from mailclient.el because Emacs
failed to find any better way of sending mail, and falls back to
mailto:.
