bug#5594: 23.1; calling rmail-cease-edit sets rmail-buffer to nil

I use rmail with mailcrypt.  After transitioning to Emacs 23,
mc-rmail-decrypt-message would bomb with an error after replacing the
text, and would therefore not set the labels appropriately.

Tracked the problem down to a call to (rmail-cease-edit) just before
some (rmail-*-label) calls.  The label manipulation was failing.  It
turned out that immediately before the (rmail-cease-edit) call, the
variable rmail-buffer was set correctly, and immediately after it was
not.  This caused the label manipulation to bomb:

  Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

There is a workaround to the problem in mailcrypt

but the underlying issue seems like something that probably broke in
the transition to rmail/mbox from rmail/babyl, so I thought I'd bring
it to your attention.
