It isn't the browser, it happens regardless of the browser used. And I
see the corruption even if I use mutt to read the forwarded message.
The corruption is happening when the forwarded message is created and
sent. And the browser couldn't be a culprit there: AFAIK, the
attachments in a message are not streamed through the browser before
being forwarded. The Forward button simply passes the message ID as
forward_id to compose.php, which then fetches the attachments itself.
