Mmmm.. false alarm I think. My filters are somehow at version 131 and
I think the message was a nested mime attachment so fell over the bug
in v131 with these sort of mime attachments. Needless to say I've
upgraded up to v133 now.

Now I've gotta work out how come I was running at v131 without
realising it.... Feature suggestion - a version number in the security
alert emails? I know its in the headers of the copied message, but it
would be nice to have a line at the end of the warning text that said
"sanitised by blah version xyz (http://www.sanitiser.address)" or
