Sheila, if you belive there's a bug, you should open a bug report. No bug
gets fixed by arguing on a mailing list, and I can pretty much guarantee
that the email package's author isn't going to see anything said about it
unless he reads it in a bug report.
A bug report doesn't need a lot of argument unless it proves to be
controversial; but since you haven't yet gotten this to the author's
attention, you can't yet know whether Barry will love or hate the complaint.
It doesn't really matter what Oleg or I may think: we're not the experts
for this package.

Without a bug report, nothing will change. I often open one for a poster
when a posted behavior is obviously a bug, or when the poster seems unable
to articulate their case clearly. This one doesn't fit either case, so I'm
leaving it to you:
Barry may or may not agree it's a bug, but-- honest --he doesn't bite,
except on Thursdays <wink>.
