Initially, I thought that it had to do with binary attachments.
After reading the fetchmail code, I feel relatively sure that any aspect
of the mail can get corrupted because the routine that I patched is very
low level. In fact, it is the routine that reads characters off of the
socket connected to the mail server.

I think that the probability of corruption is higher with larger
messages which may explain why I first noticed the problem with a
message that contained a binary attachment.
