smtpmail.el, Gnus and Reply-To

Hi, all.

I've got a reproducable error using a modern Gnus on a modern GNU-Emacs
under Win2k. The problem is related to several versions and combinations
of versions:

Emacs        Gnus      result
21.2.1  ~    5.8.8     ok
21.2.1  ~    5.9.0     ok
21.2.1  ~    5.10.2    ok
21.2.1  ~    5.10.3    ok
21.3.1  +    5.9.0     ok
21.3.1  +    5.10.2    not ok
21.3.1  +    5.10.3    not ok
21.3.50 *    5.9.0     ok
21.3.50 *    5.10.2    not ok
21.3.50 *    5.10.3    not ok

~ precompiled, downloaded directly from www.gnu.org
+ precompiled from Internet
* CVS, 2003-07-15, compiled by MinGW

As far as I investigated Emacs got a modified smtpmail.el, having
significant changes in rmail-dont-reply-to:

smtpmail.el 21.2.1:    12819 Bytes (2001-07-01)
smtpmail.el 21.3.50:   13036 Bytes (CVS, 2003-07-15)

The new version of this file calls mail-strip-quoted-names using an
_empty_ string:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (quit)
  rmail-dont-reply-to("address@hidden (Kai Gro\x8dfjohann)")
  message-get-reply-headers(nil nil)
  message-reply(nil nil)
  gnus-summary-reply((10169) nil)

To reproduce this bug please press R or r upon a news article to send a
mail reply to the poster. Emacs then hangs, he doesn't come back anymore.
Even my clock in the modeline stops counting. It looks like an endless
loop. I can only terminate it by pressing C-g. This is the reason why I
never got a working combination of a modern Emacs and a modern Gnus.
Emacs 21.3.50 includes still Gnus 5.9.0 in CVS.

I don't know if this problem is related to Win2k. I didn't try it using

Thanx and good luck
