This probably means that the culprit is something related to process I/O, 
not file I/O.  Do you read your pop3-fetched mail by receiving output of 
some process, or does that process create a file which you then direct 
RMAIL to read?

Probably due to the same factor: somehow, when RMAIL reads your mail ``as 
usual'', it applies some other default.

I will dwell on this and see what can I come up with.
