* vm-toolbar-initialize: check for device-on-window-system-p
before looking at device-bitplanes, in case the selected device
is a tty.
* use '(win) tag sets on toolbar specifiers to prevent toolbars
from being attached to non-window system frames.
* vm-multiple-fonts-possible-p: conditionalize checks on
XEmacs/Emacs to avoid looking at the window-system variable
under XEmacs where it should not be used.
* set scrollbar height only if (featurep 'scrollbar) and under
XEmacs. Previously we checked if set-specifier was fbound.
* vm-mime-preview-composition: copy value of enriched-mode to
the temp buffer so that the MIME encoding code knows what to do.
* set perms to 600 on MIME tempfiles before writing to them.
There's still a race window where access can be gained to
such files, but it should be very small assuming NFS is not

avoid overloading the cache slot... and fixed a bug thereby, due
to vm-mime-display-external-generic trying to use the contents
of the cache slot when there was an error message there.
* vm-mime-display-internal-message/rfc822: bind buffer-read-only
to nil before trying to insert text into the presentation
* vm-burst-digest will now descend into nested MIME layouts to find
digests to burst.
