You're right.  I left off the close-paren from the envelope-from section and the semicolon before the date.  I've commited fixes to CVS.

spamass-milter-0.3.1 has at least two significant errors when parsing 'Received' headers:

1) spamass-milter erroneously adds the 'envelope-from' header in lowercase form to the end of the first 'Received' header (after the date) and does so with an opening parenthesis but without a closing parenthesis.

2) spamass-milter erroneously removes the semi-colon seperating the date at the end of a 'Received' header from the rest of the header.  This is a significant because it causes spam reporting sites (e.g. spamcop) to reject spam reports as not having a valid date.

For testing, I compiled spamass-milter directly from sources.

I am using Fedora Core 4, sendmail-8.13.7-2.fc4.2, and spamassassin-3.0.6-1.fc4.

It is important to note that spamass-milter-0.3.0 parsed without these errors, and the versions of sendmail and spamassion were the same for both tests.  The only variable that changed was the version of spamass-milter.
