Very strange... the message seems to have stopped (I had it for a few days).
I'm not sure how it triggered in the first place: I have always been able
to have multiple drafts open, where comp would do this:

$ comp
Draft "/home/anthony/mail/draft" exists (84 bytes).

To answer the other questions: 1.5, no comp in profile, and the above is
what happens when draft exists (now, at least). -use made no difference when
I tried it yesterday (it either gave the same message or complained about a
missing "draft" file, I can't remember).

Chalking it up to a mystery of mh... :\ How irritating that the problem
disappears right after I report it.
