I found the message that caused the MHonArc hang (at least deleting it
solved the problem), and the header was:

The last line is weird, but changing it to something like
Date: Fri, 31 May 1996 08:32:23 -0500
didn't solve the problem. In any case, the error message
"Reading /export/home/silvert/spool/czm .....Day out of range 1..31 in
didn't give me much to go on in spotting the problem.
I finally removed the first "Received:" line and that did it. Was it the
extra space in front of the 3 in "June 3", or the lack of a newline?
In any case, it wasn't very friendly about it!
