It's best to do it that way. Your old way was clever, but taking stuff
from the input queue probably won't be reliable long-term. Future Exim
versions might change the input queue format.

Rmail has never done that to me. Like Eli said I think it's likely to
be something in your init file doing it. Do you have any bits of code
that are from keyboard macros? I.e. code from insert-kbd-macro? It can
do that kind of thing.
