A few months ago I could fix my âformail troublesâ by removing option â-dâ from
formail calls in my scripts. formail manpage conceals nasty consequences of âdo
not require strict mbox formatâ: nearly any âfromâ nearby an empty line and
probably other things will trigger message splitting.

Maybe this helps you or somebody else.

Sorry for being slightly OT, and many thanks for your great maintainance work on
stable kernel releases.
