I cannot confirm that fetchmail is guilty.
I use fetchmail to retrieve all my mails and feed them to our SMTP
server.  Then I fetch them from the local POP3 server with my windows
client.  No mails with attachments are corrupted!
So just fetching with fetchmail seems to work ( works for me(tm) )

It seems that another program in the toolchain is
causing that damage.  Mutt?  Procmail?

Maybe it is a problem with piping to procmail?
Should we debug it again?
