Thunderbird tries to spellcheck pasted mime encoded message.

Description of problem:
I'm trying to report a piece of spam I got, so I do ctrl-u to get the source,
ctrl-a to select all, ctrl-c to copy. Close that windor and then open a new
message. Paste with ctrl-v above my signature, then go up and enter
"firstname.lastname@example.org" in the To: field, hit enter to advance and at this point
thunderbird freezes while spellchecking the message. "email@example.com" is still
Not sure that there is an easy was for the spell checker to avoid this stuff. I
guess I need to be forwarding the email as an attachment, but I need to be sure
to send the full message including all headers.
Also, it seems to recheck the message each time I add a new recipient, even
though I haven't changed the text of the message, though I have selected text in it.
Created attachment 126583 [details]
Contents of the email I'm pasting into the compose window
I'm closing this because forwarding as an attachement works and sends the full
headers and avoids the spellcheck issue. I posted the bug anyways though
because many web sites still instruct you to use the ctrl-u/view source method
