I've committed a fixed to readmail.pl that should fix the
problem. I did a manual update of the snapshot build so
the snapshot bundle can be used by anyone that needs the
fix immediately.

It turns out the MHonArc crashes if it tries to process a message/external-body MIME part that happens to contain a MIME parameter encoded with RFC-2231 rules. Specifically, the Content-Type line in question was:

Content-Type: message/external-body; access-type="url";
