Outstanding mail archiving bug

Well I've tried

Allow Form Tags = no
Quarantine Infections = yes

with a message with a form tag in it, and the correct original message
segment (with the form tag still in it) is put into the quarantine.

So maybe I've already fixed this and forgot? Quite possible!

That was done using the latest beta 4.26-4.

So unless someone finds it still does the wrong thing for them with 4.26-4,
I'll consider this one closed.

Any more outstanding bugs that anyone knows about, and I haven't fixed?
