Meant to say, line numbers do not match original source.

[Unable to reproduce]

The diff you send is bogus.  The line numbers do match
the line numbers in the version of MHonArc cited, and
I have not seen the behavior reported.

Make sure you have a correct version of MHonArc, a version
that has not been edited or modified by another party.

Due to a bug in mhamain.pl, MSGLOCALDATE and MSGGMTDATE do not print the correct date. The date is retrieved from the %Time hash, which is populated in read_mail_header in mhamain.pl. The date is read into $index, but the value stored in $Time{$index} is $t, which is undefined. The following patch fixes the issue:

Index: lib/mhamain.pl
--- lib/mhamain.pl      (revision 28911)
+++ lib/mhamain.pl      (working copy)

     if (&expired_time($index)) {
        return undef;
+    my $t = $index;
     ## Insure uniqueness of index
     $index .= $X . sprintf('%d',(defined($msgnum)?$msgnum:($LastMsgNum+1)));
