my mbox format looks like the second example. You may
send me a small example mbox that doesn't work with your
mutt and I will look what my various Mailers do with it.

I think it is ok though, mbox is very "free-form" format
without terribly well defined quoting rules so it must be
strict somewhere, otherwise you would see fwded messages
wrongly split on a daily base.
