Sigh. Too many levels of encoding/decoding, not enough clarity about a canonical form to sign. Sigh.

As per my previous message, it's worse than this -- the From field is clearly a case of malformed content, but the long lines are not. Thus you can get some "glitches" even with perfectly valid messages. Sigh.

In storage it can be even worse. Undo RFC2047/IDN encoding for addresses to make them easier to search, and you immediately have a signature verification problem. Haven't solved that one yet.
