While viewing the message, I pressed "H" to enable full headers, and the
message displays fine then.  It appears, PINE's hiding more than headers
here.  I wonder if it is intentional or a bug.  I suspect a bug though.
I'll have a look in the code.

Defering for future release.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-03-15 02:30:07 EST
If this problem is still present in current pine 4.44 (I haven't checked),
it's not likely we're going to fix it.  It may or may not be fixed in
pine 4.5x perhaps, but we're not shipping that currently, and pine is

Since nobody else has reported it, I suspect it's more of a slight
inconvenience than something we really need to worry about.  If it's
present in 4.5x, we should report it upstream.

Closing WONTFIX with move upstream stipulation.
