Yes they do. At least the first one (15434) I tried fell right through into the big bad line overflow bucket.

What I think you sometimes forget, is that quoted-printable encoded text lines that end with =<newline> get joined with the next one.

Thanks to friendly people, I got a 13th-October test version to fix, and I am gonna stop messing about with silly small correction and go straight on with the big sledge hammer now. I intend to fix the biggest buffer overflow problems now, once and for all.

Do keep on providing mailboxes that cause problems. I need them.
