I'm unable to reproduce this.  If anyone else see similar effects, or
know how to make this reproducible (or maybe even can produce a patch
to fix this :), please speak up.

It should be noted, though, that the "clobber_date" configuration
option only seems to be supported by the __archive_to_mbox() method,
and not by the ArchiveMail() method that Post() invokes.  There are
comments in there indicating that __archive_to_mbox is a previous but
now renamed ArchiveMail() -- but I don't know whether it's intended
for the current ArchiveMail() method not to care about clobber_date.
