This was obvious to someone paying attention to the guts of nmh.  Which I
haven't been recently.  A more user-friendly diagnostic might be:

        Your components files are not compatible with this version of nmh.
        You have modified them so we were unable to automatically update them.
        You need to go to /etc/nmh and merge in the changes to the components,
        forwcomps, replcomps, and replgroupcomps files.  If you're in a hurry
        you can add a From: header to this message so that it can be sent.
