The header file parameters in the environment do not work as the manual page says. Instead of specifying a path name to the file containing the header, they are taken as the header itself. For example, if you set

setenv HM_IHTMLHEADERFILE=/path/to/some/file

the index file will have as the first few lines

<LI><STRONG><A HREF="#end">Most recent messages</A></STRONG>
<LI><STRONG>Messages sorted by:</STRONG>

and so on.

However, when the same variable is set in the configuration file, it is used as a path name, and the whole file is read in and its contents replace the value of the variable (this is done in file.c:384).

If this difference in behavior is intended, and I doubt it, it should be mentioned in the manual page. Otherwise, a patch is needed.
