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.
