    Please reopen this bug; the above "fix" does not fix the bug.  You
have to understand that unrmail in batch mode is used to process a set
of BABYL files to produce a parallel set of mbox files.  For example,

    find Rmail -type f -exec grep -q '^BABYL OPTIONS' {} \; \
          -exec ~/bin/emacs-22.3-install/bin/emacs -batch  \
          -f batch-unrmail {} \; >& log

Users likely would use further scripts to automatically move the
resulting *.mail mbox files into place.  The correct behavior is simply
to produce a zero length output file with no messages.
