I've resolved the one issue: clicking on mailto link. This seems to be
because I am using Debian where Iceweasel (basically firefox) is the
default browser. The issue is with iceweasel. When I use firefox, an
Evolution mail composition box appears (as set in about:config). 

However when I click on a link in Evolution, nothing happens in

You may also need to do the reverse: set Iceweasel as your preferred web
browser in gnome-control-center.

i'd already tried that
it seems a reboot (after doing a system update) did the trick. And when using KDE, gnome-control-center is 
not necessary. Both features are working with it having been removed.

gnome-control-center is just for changing the preferences. Once you've
changed them it's not needed (till the next time you want to change them
of course). The preferences are stored as XML files and loaded
automatically by the Gnome subsystem, which *does* have to be running.
