The CVS repository on Savannah is not currently being used
due to funtional limitations imposed after the security
breach months ago.

I've encountered the same error converting mboxes with various attachments. I'd appreciate the patch but I only see up to 1.19 in the CVS :(

I check the cvs repository and the version with the change does not appear there...

Looks like problem is only for Windows systems. I committed
changed to mhmimetypes.pl into CVS that should fix this

Here's an example mail message that exhibits the problem. This fails from the command line also.

I use a text-based mail reader, but run MHonArc -single on individual mail messages that require a more robust HTML display. This had been working very well with MHonArc 5.6.8, but when I recently upgraded to 5.6.10, I started seeing this error for many of the messages I tried to display:

Trailing \ in regex m/\/ at C:\Perl\site\lib/mhmimetypes.pl line 366, <GEN0> line 40.

I've attached the Perl script I use to pass the message to MHonArc and to start a browser window.
