Because it’s not testing a virus scanner, but because the
specific RFC822 message in question exhibited multiple problems
in the code, due to the way it’s written/structured.

At least this is how I read the relevant comments.

@Natureshadow: this isn’t exactly code, and it’s even in the
preferred form of modification (an RFC822-format message)…
