Tough to tell from the pic, looks like yeast & foam to me. You might check this out for more info, scroll down for flowers of wine: http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/problems.asp

Yes, I would expect that that the lees would be full of the pectin and pulp of the fruit. If it's slowed down, I'd rack to another vessel and top up a bit and see how it goes.

it kind of reminds me of a keeved cider. If the mangoes were high in pectin and solids than the co2 could float them just like in a keeved cider.
