Have you checked the existence and permissions on that path?  How much 
free space do you have on that partition, and if your installation is 
running user quotas, how close to quota is the user you run pan as?

It sounds to me like pan's downloading the information but can't save it, 
presumably due to wrong permissions or a full partition.  It would keep 
some information in memory, probably enough to display text messages altho 
I'm not positive of that, but not being able to save anything to disk 
would explain both why it can't find the files when it tries to decode 
binary attachments, AND why it isn't keeping the headers around, since it 
only has the information it's able to keep in memory to work with -- it 
can't save anything.
