This has happened before recently, and only since I started an unusual task of 
forwarding 50+ emails in one email to my reporting address.  The 
problem seems to occur immediately afterwards.

Basically, I can no longer simply read this particular email easily (in the 
example I cite).  It has become mangled in some way.

If I click the email and view it in the preview window, I am greeted with a 
bunch of *headers* from a *different* email and following that, that email's 
body.  The same occurs after double-clicking and opening up a window for that 

Viewing the message source of this email helps isolate the problem.  The text 
starts to be shown half-way through the 'real' email (not its headers), then the 
headers from the *different* email is shown, then its body.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
