Right.  I was thinking of telnet'ing directly to the SMTP
server.  Instead, I just added printouts to verify that just
the headers are being sent, with no CRLF inserted to make it
look like they're the body.

Agreed.  I did notice something else wierd, the SMTP server
sometimes complains:

  post: posting failed; [BHST] premature end-of-file on socket
  send: message not delivered to anyone

I've never seen before, but then I usually don't send empty
messages.  And I've only seen that today with empty messages.
But it's inconsistent:  a re-try usually, but not always,
