The space of the message headers sometimes is too large. See attached screenshot. The "gray area" does not end at the last header, but moreover often a huge space is introduced.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a message.
2. Look at the headers.

Actual Results:  
Gray area sometimes is too large.

Expected Results:  
Gray area should only cover headers.

Happened under rare circumstances with 1.0.x as well, but now happens nearly every second time I open a message with 1.5.

Dupe of bug 262875 (suite bug 174613)?

Indeed, could be related to Cc and Reply-to, but have not found a real "scheme" so far. Only know that it got much worse in 1.5

Yesterday "it happened to me" with a message with a lot of Cc's, but no Reply-to.

Now it also happened with NO Reply-to and NO Cc, but two recipients in the To-Field

It seems to happen if there are multiple recipients in the To: header. No Reply-to: or Cc: headers are necessary.

It does not always happen, sometimes a message is shown with the large header bar, sometimes it is okay.

Tested with TB 1.5/Win32/x86.

As noted at bug 262875 (per comment 3), I think this problem was cleaned up with bug 335973, around July '06.
I wouldn't put much faith in (or effort into) bug 255201, reporter there is unreliable.
