   Does "D" just decode MIME instead of togging the decoding
   and undecoding of MIME?  Does VM decode encoded-words of
   headers only when "D" is typed?

It's a toggle; here is the start of the doc string for

        Decode the MIME objects in the current message.
        The first time this command is run on a message, decoding is
        done.  The second time, buttons for all the objects are
        displayed instead.  The third time, the raw, undecoded data is

        If decoding, the decoded objects might be displayed immediately,
        or buttons might be displayed that you need to activate to view
        the object.  See the documentation for the variables


        to see how to control whether you see buttons or objects.

Headers in the message display seem to be decoded at the same time
(headers in the summary buffer are apparently decoded by a separate
mechanism).  And messages are initially decoded by default.
