mailman is producing "--__--__--" as a message delimiter, and

the rfc934 state machine on that to see if it's legit or not.
=v= Well swat my hind, the string is hardcoded into burst.c:
static char delim3 = "-------";
Whereas RFC934 lets anything that starts with "-" but not with
"- " serve as a separator.
Thanks for digging into that. Turns out that MH has the bug, not
