Yep, I'd say you found it. These later versions of hypermail are kinda picky about message ids: any messages with duplicate or missing ids are just simply dropped, with no warning.

If you created a dummy message and didn't put a message id in the header, put one in and that should fix it. Another problem that I ran into is with messages which contain another message (a forward), if the From: line doesn't have a '>' in front, hypermail thinks it is another message and chokes on it since it doesn't have an id. Paul pointed out that you should use the '-1' option if you're feeding it single messages, to force hypermail to interpret it as just one message.
