The exact text I mentioned earlier: 

/usr/bin/mplayer "'%s'"

Maybe it is related to this ChangeLog entry:

2005-09-07 [colin]	1.9.14cvs2
	* src/common/utils.c
		Add quotes around %s coming from mailcap

Apparently, single quotes are added unless they are already present.
It does not check for double quotes.
