The inc command makes the user's maildrop zeroed in default.
If the maildrop file contains an illegal format file (^From something),
the inc command stops and make the maildrop zeroed in default.
Please see an example of an illegal format maildrop file in the attachement.

I think that it is not a bug, but I hope that the inc command does
not make the file zeroed in such a case.
