This is mail2 folder you sent me a week or two ago?

I had a look at this and its a very badly formed HTML email with hundreds of
<body> tags. The problem is that Scribe is using a recursive algorithm to parse
the HTML and it runs out of stack space and crashs. On normal well formed email
it doesn't have a problem. I've been reviewing my options on the best way to
fix it. The 2 that come to mind are making the algorithm use a heap based
structure and not the stack (lots of work) or just detect zillions of nested
tags and quit out after a certain depth (easy).

This is fixed for v1.90-test1.

I've limited the depth of recursion to 1024 levels. After that it bails out of
parsing the HTML. Any document parsed before that point will be displayed.
