Okay!  Well, that's good, at least.  That sounds like replyfilter is
doing what it's supposed to, at least.  So if you take the output of what you
get with 'cat' and feed it to 'par', does it generate the broken output?
If so, then it sounds like par is at fault ... and I'm not sure what I
can do about that.  Other than suggest you change your par settings.

Also, if the text is sent with a non-ASCII encoding, maybe there are
some non-breakable spaces that are messing up par?
