I am only using SMTP and the error seems random at best.

Which is correct. I applied your patch and tested, it works as described.
During that time I found that I was using the wrong kind of mailto link, which was why the
tofield was being left empty. I recompliled without your patch and tried again to find that even with the correct link schema, aerc did not open without already having an instance running.
So to summarize; Your patch does work as expected, I was also using the wrong schema but it's only the means to the issue not the cause, this issue was closed as
not_our_bugwhich would be misleading as previous to your patch aerc did not open via
aerc mailto:...if not already open. Once that patch is merged then this issue is fixed.
This isn't resolved, the same behavior exists with a correct mailto link. Perhaps the title should be aerc silently exits when opening mailto links when no instance is running?
I want to say yes, but the spec for this schema does not. So my bad.
I have been writing them that way for years though and all my links appeared to open correctly in whatever client I had configured, even on Android browsers. But this would be supporting something extra, not conforming.
interesting though the
tofield is not populated. but that would be a different issue as it happens with both master and this patch.
just tested and confirmed working for me
