mhonarc breaking up messages in the middle?

1997-08-27 16:12:53

First, let me say that I am new to mhonarc and am very impressed with
it!  I had been searching for such a piece of software for a couple of
weeks when I finally discovered it.  :)  

I have recently seen some flakey behavior, however.  One message in my
 mailbox file keeps getting split in the middle for no apparent
reason.  I have tried a number of things to correct this problem.
I've rerun mhonarc after deleting .mhonarc.db and all the .html files
from the outdir.  Sometimes, it's as though mhonarc remembers its
previous conversions even though I've deleted the .mhonarc.db file.
Is this possible?

Below is the message that mhonarc is splitting, as snipped from the
nnfolder mailbox.  I've tried moving it's position around in the
source file, but repeated runs of mhonarc continue to generate the
split just after the first paragraph.  The second portion of it gets
generated into a message without any headers or subject.

The resulting split messages can be seen at

TIA for any insight, or tips.

From the 1997-98 rule books.  The prose in the outdoor rule book
continues to disappoint me, but there are some interesting and
significant changes.  I'm happy to see that there was an attempt to
get the referees out of the "intent judging" business regarding sets
sent over the net.  


USA Volleyball 1997-98 Significant Rule Changes




Rules 4.1. and 4.1.2 have been interchanged which is an editorial
change only.

The change in Rules 7.2.1. and 7.2.2. is a further clarification of
scoring and brings our Rules in accordance with the FIVB rules.

A change was made for Doubles and Triples Competition only in Rules
13.1.3 and 18.4.1 that now states that blocking DOES constitute a team
contact, and any player may make the second contact of the ball
after the block.  This change brings our rules into accord with the
FIVB and other sanctioning groups.  The Rule for Four-Player and
Six-Player Competition DID NOT change and the block does NOT
constitute a team contact.

A clarification should be pointed out for all Beach Volleyball
competition, that Rules and 13.2.1 allow for simultaneous
contact by teammates which is counted as one contact and any player
may make the second contact.

Rule 13.2.3 now allows a joust to be legal for all types of
competition including Four-Player and Six-Player competition.

Rule 13.4.1 now allows the player in Six-Player competition to touch
the ball with any part of the body.

Rule now allows a "beach dig" to be allowed during the
defensive play of a hard-driven ball in Four-Player and Six-Player

The change in Rule 13.4.5 is an attempt to take intent out of the Rule
and judge legality only if there is sufficient wind to be a factor in
the play.  For example, if the wind is blowing into the team's court
and a legal set is sent over the net, then that would be judged a
fault.  Conversely, if the wind is blowing in the same direction and
the other team's set crosses over the net, it would not be judged a

Rule 16.6 allows for one service attempt and it has been adopted by
all other governing bodies and makes our Rules in accordance with
those bodies.

The change in Rule 21.1.2 is to clarify the handling of a situation of
an injured player.  It was reworded to amplify and to eliminate

they won't fold until they pay me the four figures they owe me.  or else. 
and if nancy lengel, FORMER (hurray!) executive director, doesn't come up
with the rollerblades she stole from me in chicago, she's got another good
one coming.  hope you kids (in the WPVA office) read this and feel your
place in life.

best regards to the players, they deserve better.


Did you referee in the Chicago event?  Your name sounds vaguely

I'm just curious if I might have seen you there.
