Ok, I give up.  Where in mimedefang.c is the code that is stripping \r
and \0 out of the message body?  The body() function is what is
testing for suspicious characters, but body() doesn't appear to skip
or change anything, and writen() doesn't appear to modify its input in
any way.

In terms of headers, safeWriteHeader() is obvious, but all of my
quarantine messages are tripping on suspicious characters in the

(I'm looking at the source for 2.31, BTW.)
