Package: libemail-abstract-perl
Version: 2.134-2
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

As documented in http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=32198,
the use of uninitialized variables in Email::Abstract::MailInternet 
causes copious warnings in the tests Mail::Thread.

I propose the attached patch. It eliminates the warnings; I would appreciate
any feedback peoply might have. Of course we can add this patch the RT ticket 
above. Actually my patch is (IMHO) a slight improvement on the one above.
Of course that should make you really worried :-)
