Summary:  Received-header parsing with Ecartis

Original Submission:  Ecartis uses this received-header:

Received: with ECARTIS (v1.0.0; list dovecot); Thu, 29 Aug 2002 03:17:57 +0300 

New mhonarc gives warnings about it, because it contains the extra ';' field 
inside comment. I think ';' is allowed inside comment, so it looks more like 
mhonarc problem than ecartis.

Warning message of possible malformed received header 
has been disabled.  This is to avoid bogus warnings for
received headers that have semi-colons in a comment token.
Supressing the warning is more efficient performance-wise
than adding full RFC 822 parsing.  A warning is still 
generated if MHonArc is unable to determine the date of
a message.

Even though a warning is generated, MHonArc does parse the
date correctly.  Since I do not think it is worth dealing
with comment parsing in received headers (which is
complicated accroding RFC 822 rules), I'll probably just
remove the warning message.
