 Log Message:
 Update p5-Mail-Mbox-MessageParser to 1.4005.
 Based on patch provided by Martin Wilke via PR 34390.
 - Fixed a bug where emails with a line near the end that start with "From "
 	would cause the Grep implementation to go into an infinite loop. (Thanks to
 	Volker Kuhlmann <> for the bug report.)
 - Fixed some minor coding style issues.
 Version 1.4004: Tue Jul 11 2006
 - Fixed a bug where, when emails are incomplete, the Perl parser would cache
 	incorrect information, causing the Cache implementation to go into an
 	infinite loop when it tried to use the invalid information.
 - Improved the behavior for multi-part emails that lack a valid ending
 	boundaries. Instead of treating the rest of the mailbox as part of the
 	email, the Perl and Grep parsers now find the end of the email using (1) a
 	Content-Length header if it is present, or (2) the next valid "^From " line
 	after the email's header. (Many thanks to Volker Kuhlmann
 	<>, Eduard Bloch <>, and Joey Hess
 	<> for their efforts to track down the cause of the bug.
 	Special thanks to Volker for suggesting the right behavior. :)
 - Simplified the code some
 Version 1.4003: Sun May 21 2006
 - Fixed a bug where multi-part emails having boundaries containing characters
 	like " " and "+" would cause the remainder of the mailbox to be treated as
 	part of the email with the boundary. (Thanks to Volker Kuhlmann
 	<> for first reporting the bug, and thanks to Joey Hess
 	<> for the bugfix.)
 - Fixed a previously unrevealed fault in the mailbox for the separators test.
 	(The last message's separator wasn't used correctly.)
 Version 1.4002: Thu Feb  9 2006
 - Dropped tzip support. The program seems poorly supported and buggy. (I can't
   get it to run right on Mac, for example.)
 - An invalid cache is detected and overwritten. This can occur if one changes
   architectures, or if the cache is otherwise corrupted. (Thanks to Volker
   Kuhlmann <> for the feature suggestion.)
 - Fixed a major memory consumption bug in the Perl implementation, where the
   read buffer would grow exponentially. This caused the module to use memory
   proportional to the size of the mailbox, rather than the size of the largest
   email. (Thanks to David Cantrell <> for the bug
 Version 1.4001: Tue Aug 2 2005
 - Fixed a bug where emails involving time zones of length more than 3
   characters (e.g. "WETDST") would not be processed correctly.  (Thanks to
   Hans F. Nordhaug <> for the bug report.)
 - Fixed some undefined value warnings for some test cases.
 - Fixed a bug where mailboxes having emails with rfc822 attachments would not
   be parsed correctly
 Version 1.4000: Thu Jul 7 2005
 - Fixed a long-standing bug in the parsing of mail messages containing mail
   attachments. (Thanks to Brian May <> for the bug report.)
 - Dropped X-From-Line support for two reasons: (1) it seems to have
   disappeared from newer versions of Gnus, and (2) this module is for mbox
   format. (Thanks to Brian May <> for prompting this.)
 - Changed the mail parsing so that a blank line *must* separate mail messages,
   as per mail(5) ( Lack of a blank
   line will cause the second email to be considered to be part of the
   preceding email.
 Version 1.3001: Mon Jun 6 2005
 - Changed the testing code to use a more aggressive technique for clearing any
   existing cache, even if it is not readable.
 - Fixed a problem with the grep implementation where locale settings (LC_ALL,
   LC_COLLATE, LANG, LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES) would cause it to fail. (Thanks to
   Joey Hess <> for the bug report.)
 Version 1.3000: Mon Mar 14 2005
 - Merged the internal caches used by the different mailbox parser
   implementations. This allows sharing of caching information. NOTE: Tighter
   integration of the classes means that you can no longer instantiate any of
   the implementations directly; you must use Mail::Mbox::MessageParser only.
 - Fixed goofy version dependency for Benchmark::Timer.
 - Fixed improper identification of mailboxes whose first email has a body
   containing a large number of foreign characters. (Thanks to Nigel Horne
   <> for the bug report and sample data.)
 - Fixed a spurious warning in a test case. (Thanks to Nigel Horne
   <> for the bug report.)
 - Fixed a test code bug that would cause some failed tests to incorrectly
 - Fixed a bug where emails with attachments would cause the mailbox parser to
   enter an infinite loop. (Thanks once again to Joey Hess <>
   for the excellent bug report.)
 - Fixed a bug where the cache would not be saved to disk when the file was
   finished being read.
 - Fixed a bug in the test cases where some differences in test output would
   not be detected.
 - Fixed a bug in Mbox::Mail::MessageParser::Grep that would cause it to
   improperly identify separate emails in a mailbox if the "From " line looked
   like "From klopp Mon Jan  5 08:50:15 +0100 2004". (Thanks to Frederic Klopp
   <>" for the bug report and sample mailbox.)
 Version 1.2130: Tue Dec 21 2004
 - Fixed version numbers, which were incompatible with some modules. (Thanks to
   Tassilo von Parseval <> for the bug
 Version 1.21.2:
 - Fixed a dependency version error for Benchmark::Timer
 - Switched to Test::More for better error reporting
 - Improved test failure reporting
 - Fixed a bug where messages embedded in other messages as RFC 822 attachments
   would be treated as separate emails. (Thanks to Will Fiveash
   <> for the bug report.)
 - Moved all configuration data to M::M::MP::Config
 Version 1.21.1: Thu Sep 16 2004
 - Fixed broken dependency specification in Makefile.PL
 - Removed Module::Install extension dependency code from Makefile.PL. (Not
   needed with fixed extensions.)
