My python is parsing the mail files incorrectly. If I strip out the
non-related headers in the email, it works.

I tried to upgrade to Python 3 to see if this bug has been fixed, but
patchwork doesn't work with it:

$ /srv/patchwork/apps/patchwork/bin/ < /var/mail/newnam
  File "/srv/patchwork/apps/patchwork/bin/", line 56
    return normalise_space(u' '.join(fragments))
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
