I do not see that dialog in this context (I'm familiar with it, but it isn't
being displayed when this bug occurs).

Wrapping settings: all four boxes ticked, wrap at 75 characters.

I don't believe this is a display/editing bug. I believe it is identifying a
contravention of RFC2822 section 2.1.1, "Each line of characters MUST be no
more than 998 characters, and SHOULD be no more than 78 characters, excluding
the CRLF." The error I'm seeing is from the MUST clause; the wrapping settings
and warning you refer to are from the SHOULD clause. I may be wrong, but that's
my interpretaion.

I have forwarded mails using Claws for years. It is only in the past 4-6 weeks
(using builds from git) that this problem has occurred.

You are receiving this mail because:
You are the assignee for the bug.
