Apparently the situation is the reverse on MS-Windows and Macs: mail
from Emacs often doesn't work, and simply punting to the system's
mailto: handler is a better guess.

Not really, more like by default it doesn't even try on Windows and Macs.
Check the conditions in which send-mail-function defaults to
mailclient-send-it. I suggest you copy those conditions to the default
setting of browse-url-browser-function.
