User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

Every few months over the past couple of years I re-test the mozilla
waters to see if it's usable for a kernel developer.  Sigh.

I want to use it to send patches.  In the body of the email.

1.3a can actually receive incoming patches without corrupting them,
but if I send one, any line which starts with a space gets an extra
space inserted in front of it, and of course the patch doesn't apply.

All we want is a "don't muck around with the text" mode.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get a patch into your X cut buffer with, say, `xcb -s 0 < patchfile'
2.paste it into the body of an email (Xll middle-button thing)
3.send to self
4.Save the result to a local file and compare with the original

Actual Results:  
Every line which started with a space has an extra space prepended

Expected Results:  
Kept its cotton-pickin paws off my email
