They don't publish the source, but AFAIK it's standard Emacs with "no
extras! no nonsense!" (see <http://emacsformacosx.com/>)

Quite possible.  It's in a Gnus buffer, so I'd normally be inclined to
suspect some auxilliary imap library or something, but Gnus can display
the raw message with no trouble.  Oh, you know, I bet it's w3m.

Yeah.  I'd say, close this bug until evidence becomes clearer.
