Does it work if you convert it to \n line endings, using d2u?

Why are you mounting the same physical directory to two
different posix paths with different options?  I'm not sure
that will always work the way you expect, although I doubt
it explains the problems you are seeing.

At any rate, thanks for narrowing down your application
to a smaller test case; I'll see what I can find with it.  Any
chance you can convince your mailer to send text files
with a text mime type?  In the meantime, since 3.1-7 is
marked experimental and was not working for you, you
are under no obligation to use it.
