MH draft message triggering the bug

This was reported originally at Debian bug #801854 as a problem with an
incoming mail. But I've checked and Claws Mail itself can generate a mail which
cannot read later :-(

To summarise the problem: if the size of the recipient list exceeds certain
size the list of addresses generated in the compose window is lost.

Steps to reproduce:

* Open compose window
* Add a large number of recipients or not so large but with large addresses┬╣.
* Save to drafts
* Optional: check the MH file and verify that the list is correctly saved
* Reopen or reedit drafted message

Current result in message view after reopening:
* The list is truncated at some point, no address boundaries are respected.

Current result in compose window after reediting:
* The list of recipients appears incomplete, last address is truncated at some
point. Rest of addresses are completely lost.

Expected result: complete list of addresses on both windows.

Attached a mail created with CM which triggers the bug.

┬╣ Large seems to mean over 8192 bytes of recipients, though not confirmed,
because of the BUFSIZE size found on some buffer used by the intermediate
