It's just as you said---I didn't run mhbuild. Having that run
automatically wouldn't be a bad idea. Is there a way to have that run
automatically in 1.5?

That's correct.

Do you mean without a pager in mhshow? How would I do that?

I think I found something related to the cause: I have this line in
my mhn.defaults:

  mhshow-show-text/html: %p/usr/bin/lynx -force_html -dump '%f' | less

When I remove that and run show on the message which has a text/plain
part, it displays correctly. I take it that what I have in mhn.defaults
is not/no longer a good thing to have? What are people using to display
HTML parts these days?
