Today I made a copy of my inbox file, before using Emacs' pop3 mail
retrieval.  The bug is now reproducable, when receiving that mail box
via pop3 (2nd mail in the mailbox file).  But it won't occur, when I use
C-u g savedmailbox <Ret>.  That's cool!

And I just discovered another mysterious bug.  The last mailinglist mail
in the mailbox (from debian-japanese) contains a 

Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=iso-8859-1

header, although its contents are obviously iso-2022-jp (7bit) encoded.
When receiving the mailbox via pop3, the japanese characters in the mail
show up correctly, and an

X-Coding-System: iso-2022-jp-unix

header is generated.  How can that happen?  The same mail, however, read
via C-u g ... will be decoded as iso-8859-1 (as it should be).

I attach the full mailbox: savedmailbox.gz.
