I discovered a strange bug in Anomy. For some mails, the mail gets
corrupted with 8-bit garbage. I don't know what exactly triggers
it, but here are the steps to reproduce using Squirrelmail 1.4.4:

1) Set Squirrelmail to default to HTML compose mode. I use the
html_mail plugin v2.2 with FCKeditor.

2) Compose a message. Enter some text and insert a simley.

3) Save the message as a draft.

4) Resume the draft.

5) Send the message (to an account filtered by anomy).

Now, the message in the INBOX should be corrupted with 8bit garbage.
