Since you know that my time is extremely limited these days, may I ask
people to be a bit more systematic in reporting bugs?  

Please take some time now to read the "Bugs" section of the VM manual and
the link to the Emacs manual which explains how to report bugs.  The
subsection called "Understanding Bug Reporting" of the Emacs manual is
extremely clear and describes what you need to write in reporting bugs.

For an example of a well-constructed bug report, please see this (even

Please note the level of precision required in reporting the problem.

  M-x vm-submit-bug-report

Most software developers only accept bug reports via the prescribed method.
In future, I also intend to accept only the bug reports submitted by the
prescribed method and ignore all problems reported on viewmail-info mailing
