Odd. I started seeing mailbox corruption the day before the first post
showed up here. Since it was only one list (BUGTRAQ) and I'm still at
pre7, I've ascribed it to a problem with the sender. The corruption
shows up as weird characters at the end of the file. I only mention it
because of the odd time-coincident nature of the error. I don't suppose
there is a connection?
