What you have done appears to be OK. I already have similar workarounds in
place. for instance, I use a small script to refer mailto: requests in
Firefox to Thunderbird.
I have no clue why the %u gets dropped, but I imagine that % has a special
meaning or is interpreted as a second element that your version of KMail
(?) is unwilling to accept. I know of at least another person (with a newer
version of KDE) who could have the %u in place. I was in the same situation
as you some months ago.
