Now I found out that when the confirm code is in mail body
and non-ascii characters are on next line confirm succeeds.
(only one such test done)

Maybe it's only the situation when confirm is send by reply
(confirm code in Subject) and non-ascii characters in the mail boby
that goes wrong. Is it something to do with that Subject-line must
be ascii allways?
