Thanks!  I believe this also explains a few bug reports I've got, with
the exact same symptoms as the ones you describe.

Does anyone know what motivate people to do this?  It sounds to me
like a rather disruptive thing to do.

Do you have of a reference to this 1msg stuff?  It would be good to
include a reference to it in smtpmail.el.  I'm particularly worried
that we might not be conforming to the intention of 1msg fully.
Perhaps there is some deep idea behind it.  (Though I doubt that..)
