That's pretty weird. Are you sure Claws Mail is actually seeing that
$HOME? You can check from inside Claws Mail with the Python plugin via
Tools -> Show Python console, and then in the interactive console

import os; print os.environ["HOME"]

Looking at the code, I don't see another reason for xdg-open to fail in
that way.
