OK: here is my solution:

    find ./1 -type f -iname '[0-9]' -exec sed -i -e ':a;N;$!ba;s/=\n//g' {} \;

executed in a bash script (or simply on the command line).

Details here (GitHub gist):

Claws mail messages are saved in numeric-only filenames, so my plan is to copy the Claws mail directories I want to work with to another location, and run that script over the contents (copied folders), thus preserving the integrity of my Claws Mail directories but allowing me to preprocess ("clean) those affected messages, prior to further work with them.

Best, V.  :-)
