Turned out that it wasn't just Sylpheed that didn't honor links, so I
posted a note on the FF userboards and someone suggested making IE my
default browser, and then making FF my default browser again (as he
said "Sometimes Windows needs a kick to let it know who's in charge.")

That worked...

I'm happy again (well I *still* haven't won the lottery, so not as
happy as I could be :-)
