    Was it for the MIME version of forwarding or for the inline version?

For the MIME version.

    I think what needs to be done is to copy into the buffer where mail is
    composed the message in the original form, not in the form we put into
    the rmail-view-buffer.

No.  That had the bug (the one reported before), and it also is an
ugly pain in the neck.  Anyway, if you want to forward the raw form,
all you have to do is type v.  That works, too.

    For the definitive answer, I suggest to start Emacs with the default
    value of mail-user-agent, start Rmail, forward (to yourself) a message
    with attachments, and then look at hoe message.el did it.

But that is not conclusive.  What we need is a person who knows MIME
well enough to look at the generated text, and tell us if it has an error.
