Description of problem:
I am attempting to send email from within gnus (M-x gnus). The end result
is a munged mail message -- something is happening with the passage of the
message from gnus/emacs to sendmail such that the result is the original header being contained within the body of the delivered message.

User-Agent: Gnus/5.09 (Gnus v5.9.0) Emacs/21.4
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
no .emacs & no .gnus
The -sentmail- saved message contains the message as composed, with subject line, as well as the X-From-Line: nobody, etc etc, the same as in FC5 and previous versions.
I know this is a gnus/emacs issue because when I send mail from 'mail', I
do not receive a munged mail message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade from FC5 to FC6
2. emacs -f gnus
3. attempt to send mail from within gnus
headers generated by emacs/gnus, (From,To, Subject, Reply-To)contained within the body of the message;actual headers were generated by sendmail
Attachments(ms-excel, ms-offce) were sent as text files and not as MIME
attached, thus, the receipients mail client could not translate the file.
From/To/Subject/Reply-to should have been the same as specified in the composition of th emessage. Attachments should not be sent as text.
