Works for me (under Ubuntu).  This is the code that's run:

      (if (and to subject body)
          (if (report-emacs-bug-can-use-osx-open)
              (start-process "/usr/bin/open" nil "open"
                             (concat "mailto:"; to
                                     "?subject=" (url-hexify-string subject)
                                     "&body=" (url-hexify-string body)))
            (start-process "xdg-email" nil "xdg-email"
                           "--subject" subject
                           "--body" body
                           (concat "mailto:"; to)))

That invocation looks very much like what you're reporting as
working...  What's `C-c M-i' bound to for you?
