We'll it only started immediately after the upgrade.  I don't think an
upgrade can cause off-site problems, so something probably changed in
Fedora functionality or default modes of operation. 

I did a find on /usr/bin/ and found that the nmh inc program contains
the "BAD MSG" string.  Another hint is that all incoming messages are
now terminated with carriage returns (^M). 

I fixed the problem by adding "stripcr" to fetchmail's rc file..  I used
to have "forcecr" in the .fetchmailrc and it never caused a problem. 
I'm guessing that inc(1) has changed it's behavior and is no longer
happy with carriage return delimiters.
