Using Build ID: 2002112804
Steps to reproduce problem:
1. Compose in HTML format
2. Options/Format/Auto Detect
3. Reply to a plain text message
At this point, the reply will be automatically converted to plain text
4. Edit/Rewrap
Now attempting to send the message triggers the HTML Mail Question

???  You mean an actual plain text composition, or just a fixed-width font in 
the quotation?  I certainly don't see the former; quote with fixed-width font 
only for text/plain without f=f.

If the recipient is not in the address book, or is listed with an Unknown 
received-mail-type preference, then I see the question even without rewrapping, 
for replies to text/plain (with or without f=f) or text/html.  Apparently, 
having a quote counts as "formatting" for purposes of determining whether or not 
to prompt.  xref bug 57256.

Neil, should this be kept open?

What I see is that if you take a simple plain text message, and reply to it,
then that quote is not interpreted as requiring HTML, and it will autoconvert to
plain text without asking me. But if I run it through rewrap then it will ask me
to convert it to plain text, even though it already looks like plain text.

If I reply to a reply then sometimes it asks me and sometimes it does not.

Is it possible that the autoconversion takes place because the recipient is 
listed in your address book as "prefers plain"?

Nice try, but a) I don't edit address cards, they all get collected b) this was
a news post, so no recipients involved.

See bug 249082 -- the HTML question is invoked by the presence of
  <span style="white-space: pre;">
resulting from the Rewrap conversion of <blockquote>.

I'm not seeing this behaviour.
