Thank you for your report.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fail for me, at least not in the stock Emacs
22.1 version of RMAIL.  Could you please try in "emacs -Q", and see if
the problem goes away?

Obviously, we don't want to go back to the old version, we want to
debug and fix the new one instead.

Can you please show an example of such a message?  I'm not sure I
understand what you mean.
