When Paul Haggart packaged the latest upstream version, he neglected to
re-apply his patch that switched off the antispam and mimedecode "features"
by default.

I don't know why he didn't do that; I would have though my rabid rants
about those problems would have stuck in his mind.

Anyway, I solved the problem by downgrading back to 4.7.6-2 and putting it
on hold.

I'm quite tired of dealing with fetchmail's stupidity.  Anybody else want
to re-file these bugs?
