Funny mailer problem - BAD MSG



Hi,

I just upgraded from Fedora 8 -> 9 -> 10.

Most everything is working or even improved, except for a
puzzling mailer bug.  All my incoming mail has the the line:
"BAD MSG:" inserted before body of the message.

I sent a message to my offsite mail server that looks like this:

and it was correctly delivered to my local machine.  However,
the mail sent to my server through sendmail, and returning via
fetchmail looks like:

Who is inserting the "BAD MSG:" string, and why?

This is happening to all incoming mail, and started immediately
after the upgrade.

I'm using sendmail, fetchmail, and running slocal, nmh and exmh for the
mail reader and input processing. 

Here's the relevant /var/log/maillog entry:

    Jun 14 11:25:10 chi sendmail[28012]: n5EIP9mx028012:
       from=<walker chi>, size=281, class=0, nrcpts=2,
       msgid=<200906141825 n5EIP9mx028012 chi omnisterra com>, proto=E
    SMTP, daemon=MTA, relay=localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]
    Jun 14 11:25:11 chi sendmail[28014]: n5EIP9mx028012: to="|
    /usr/libexec/nmh/slocal -user walker", ctladdr=<walker> (500/500),
    /delay=00:00:01,
    xdelay=00:00:01, maile r=prog, pri=60533, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent Jun 14
    11:25:14 chi sendmail[28014]: STARTTLS=client,
    relay=mail.omnisterra.com., version=TLSv1/SSLv3, verify=FAIL,
    cipher=AES256-SHA, bits=256/256 Jun 14 11:25:15 chi sendmail[28014]:
    n5EIP9mx028012: to=<walker omnisterra com>, c tladdr=<walker chi>
    (500/500), delay=00:00:05, xdelay=00:00:04, mailer=relay, pri= 60533,
    relay=mail.omnisterra.com.  [xxx.xxx.xxx.247], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (OK
    id=1M FuK0-0006Vm-6h) Jun 14 11:26:45 chi sendmail[28039]:
    n5EIQcIh028039: from=walker, size=0, class=0, nrcpts=0, 
relay=root localhost

I've googled "BAD MSG:" and have not found any other complaints
of this nature.
