this is precisely working as per manual for show when you are
showing a message that's not just text/plain (see showmimeproc in show(1)):
first headers, then all the body parts separately.
a quick fix would be to use show -nocheckmime or
show -showmimeproc mhl (or showmimeproc in .mh_profile); that way
you lose the mime part separation but gain uninterrupted display.

i don't think that this is debian-specific, but i rather suspect
it's an artefact of the common-ish mailcap stuff in linux,
which might be handled differently on *bsd?
(or might it have been that you tested with a plain message on the
bsd and a mime-encrusted one on the linuxes?)
