The above tip, plus the iconv manpage fixed the problem.  I added the -c
option to the iconv invocation:

     Options controlling conversion problems:

     -c   When this option is given, characters  that  cannot  be
          converted are silently discarded, instead of leading to
          a conversion error.

and this allowed the problem emails to render correctly.

However, I still wonder why the email I attached previously causes iconv
to choke.  

In any case, thanks for your great work.
