[hypermail] Weird bug related to message ids

Maybe you know what is wrong here.

The test

I'm testing hypermail as follows:
  1. Convert a mailbox with some messages as follows:

        hypermail -d dirname -m /path/to/mailbox

2. I then try to add a new message as follows:

        hypermail -d dirname -u -m message

The problem

One of the messages in the mailbox has the following msgid (showing how it is stored in hypermail):

<!-- id="000e01bfd579$76981260$956bfac1_at_c6y7d4" -->

It corresponds to the original value.

When doing 2), I get the following warning message:

Message-ID is missing, ignoring message with subject ....

I traced this bug to the following code on parse.c:2836

else if (!strcasecmp(command, "id")) {

    char *raw_msgid = getvalue(line);
    msgid = unspamify(raw_msgid);
    if (raw_msgid) free(raw_msgid);
    if (msgid && (!isalnum(*msgid) || !strchr(msgid,'.')

		  || !strstr(line,"-->")) && set_linkquotes)
       msgid = NULL;/* old version of Hypermail wrote junk? */ }

Any idea why we're using the isalnum function there? I converted this archive from zero with the same version of hypermail that's complaining about this test against an old version of hypermail.

I don't have enough context to fix this problem. The msgid value looks correct to me.
