There's a worm going around that has a ZIP attachment with a
base64-encoded filename. The current release sanitizer does NOT catch
it because it currently does not decode filenames. I have added
a check for the ZIP MIME type so the next release (tomorrow?) should
catch it.

Grab the dev snapshot if you don't want to wait for the release.

The dev snapshot also fixes an infinite-loop bug on certain zip

  Bush? Kerry? I'm so sick of our elections always being "choose the
