That's the cause, I think:  if the -attach isn't in your .mh_profile,
the later detach won't see it.

detach doesn't complain about other things, such as deleting
an attachment that doesn't exist.  That probably should be

The recommended (docs/README-ATTACHMENTS) setup is to put this
in your .mh_profile:

        send: -attach X-MH-Attachment
        whatnow: -attach X-MH-Attachment

Then your detach would work.  Alternatively, you could "detach -n 1".
