  No attachment when Thunderbird is set as default client.

Bug description:
  Currently, when thunderbird is set as the default email client, when
  simple-scan tries to open a new message using mailto: , a new message
  window is opened for thunderbird, but there are no attachment.

  This is probably due to Thunderbird who does not support attachment
  with mailto because it is considered unsecure, but still, this makes
  user experience very poor, as the user is left thinking "ok a new
  window opened, therefore the attachment must be somewhere..". And
  thunderbird is pretty popular.

  Fortunately this might be easy to "workaround". Picasa already did it
  using xdg-email script that I attached since its code show exactly
  what's needed. the run_thunderbird() function is the more important
  part in the file.
