Core dumps are normally a sign that something is wrong with perl.
Since you did not mention what version of perl you are using, I would
guess it is an older version of perl 5.  What version are you using?
If it is older that then the current release, I recommend upgrading.

Both machines I tried it on had Perl 5.001 patchlevel 1m

BTW, you did not state what version of MHonArc you are using?

And MHonArc was 2.1

But I still can't see how it can be related to these versions being old,
because, as my second mail showed, it was the mail message with a MIME
multipart part which was an inline rfc822 message which was making
mhonarc fail.
