About 90 of them :-/  It's pasted on to the end of warning
("admonish") messages.

Good questions.  In this case (erroneous Content-Transfer-Encoding
in a multipart message), nmh skips the current message and
moves on to the next one.  That might be considered useful
when showing multiple messages.  Though I could see treating
this particular warning as an error instead, therefore
exiting instead of continuing.

I wouldn't change that globally:  each warning would need to
be studied before changing.

Suggestions welcome, esp. for this case.
