This is a harmless, but annoying failure.  Here's what I wrote
to someone else:

The tests succeed if you have Mail::Header version 1.62, but fail if
you have Mail::Header 1.17.  I do not know at which point the
changeover occurred.  Old versions of Mail::Header would write the
MIME-Version header thus:

  Mime-Version: 1.0

while newer ones use:

  MIME-Version: 1.0

The test failure is therefore harmless, though I will look at modifying the
test so it works for any version of Mail::Header.

(According to http://search.cpan.org/src/MARKOV/MailTools-1.67/ChangeLog,
the problem was fixed in Change 520 on March 16, 2000, so I may not bother
worrying about it.  Though according to the changelog, 1.17 should have
been OK, but I know it isn't... weird.)
