I got a report of grepmail hanging on a small mailbox. I've attached the
mailbox (foo). I can reproduce the problem using latest versions of
grepmail and the other modules.

This is almost more interesting than the hang:

[email protected]:~>rm .grepmail-cache
[email protected]:~>grepmail foo foo
Use of uninitialized value in addition (+) at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/Mbox/Me=
ssageParser/Grep.pm line 192.

As to the hang, with debugging on, it stops here:

At this point it's spinning, didn't seem to terminate within a
reasonable timeframe.
