Yeah, take a look at the dev snapshot. I've changed the UUE exclusion
to encompass all of the HTML defanging instead of just the
byte-encoding decoding. I've also tightened up the UUE line test a bit
to reduce false hits. It will still incorrectly defang stuff in the
very last line of the UUE file because I'm still being a bit lazy...

Thanks for the report.
