Yes, this is what I suspected - with the multipart your configuration of
discouraged alternatives makes Gnus not choose the html-part, but when
there only _is_ text/html, it is displayed (rather than displaying
nothing). That is what "discouraged" is supposed to mean, as far as I
understand it.

That does not explain, however, why you get pictures when it seems like
you the default configuration, which should not fetch them. (Which I
can't reproduce, but maybe I'm doing something different).

I find it much easier to use than tcpdump, wireshark etc. :-)
