I'm not sure what MIME would have to do with it, but Piet van Oostrum's
problem is almost certainly as result of the python.org mail to news
gateway mangling the References header.  The missing postings he's looking
for don't actually exist.  Just go up the thread one more posting and
you'll find the message that was being replied to.
