I have the following message in my IMAP inbox. I can read it if I use
Communicator 4.7, but if I use Mozilla 5.0 Mail, clicking on it does nothing
except cause the message content area to stop repainting.

On WinNt, if I bring a window in front of the content area, and then make the
content window the front window again, it does not repaint, that is you can
still see whatever used to be over it.

Here's the message in my inbox:

Linkifier getting confused? Reassign to rhp, cc BenB

This is not my bug: The malformed line results from the headers being passed
through my (recognition) code (i.e. the TO-header is linkyfied), which shouldn't
be the case.
Although this reveals, what seems to be a bug in my code :-).

Filed bug #21603 against myself and noticed, that at least my current code puts
out that:
ScanTXT orginal:         "Michele C.D. Reyes" <"kdnj4">,
ScanTXT result:          "Michele C.D. Reyes" &lt;"kdnj4"<a

Kin, which build do you use? If you're using a current one, it looks like the
output wasn't produced by my code at all.

I'm using my 12/13/1999 SeaMonkey WinNt build.

The bad address was from my wife's Communicator 4.61 address book.

I'm not concerned about the problems we are having parsing the malformed
address. I'm more concerned about the fact that I can't read that message
because of an error in one of the receipient's address.

I should be able to read the message no matter how mangled the other
receipient's addresses are.

I agree.
I was just checking, if that bug is related to me. But the xml doesn't seem to
root from my code.
