You mention you have used 0.4.x before. It could maybe be a problem with
the renaming of the mailcap options. Could you maybe grep for your
mailcap options in ~/.elinks/elinks.conf and feed them back .. also
maybe try to test it with a new elinks.conf file[0] and see if the
behaviour is still there?

I did some changes recently so that the mailcap files are only loaded
when necesary. Iwouldn.t say it is very well tested but it works for me
so I doubt this can be the cause.

[0] You can use the recently added -confdir parameter:
    -confdir <str>        Set config dir to given string.
