I repeated the test (with a two days old Emacs from CVS):
`C-u M-x rmail RET mbox-test.rmail2 RET' (then `C-x C-s', `C-x C-c').
The diff between the original file and mbox-test.rmail2 is the same.

After cvs update and make, I only get the additional
X-RMAIL-ATTRIBUTES headers like you described.

Even if rmail-mode only adds these headers, we should *not* enable the
mode by default for mbox files.

Bye, Reiner.
