User-agent: IMAIL/1.21; Edwin/3.116; MIT-Scheme/7.7.90.+


    It doesn't explain the truncation, though.  To study that I think I'd
    really need to catch IMAIL in the act, or something.  (I'm a little
    more wary of RMAIL, actually, considering that the part of IMAIL that
    writes the mail files to the disk is a page of very straightforward
    Scheme code, whereas RMAIL is a gigantic pile of elaborate elisp that
    does lots of complicated editing of the file in-memory.)

I have used RMAIL "forever" and haven't had such problems.
But I only transferred from nfs to afs in April.

    Can you reproduce the truncation of trips.msgs?  Did you happen to be
    scrolling through many of the messages in IMAIL before saving the
    file?  Also, do you remember how big a heap you started Scheme with
    (or whether you started with the default heap size)?  I'm wondering
    whether this is an unreported memory exhaustion, possibly due to the
    MIME parser, in the middle of writing out the file.

I have no idea what I did during that session.
However, I always start edwin in a default way, by saying "edwin &"
