I have a patch ready that changes MH-E to accept either one slash or
two.  It also re-enables the unit test with mailutils, if the version
is sufficiently new.

What version should I require for mailutils?  The version in my build
from HEAD is 3.13.90.  But older snapshots of the devel tree, also
numbered 3.13.90, won't have the fix.  Does it fit in your workflow to
bump the version to 3.13.91?
