This appears to be a packaging error of some sort, the file isn't part
of bogofilter's test suite in CVS, but looking at the ClamAV report (I
can reproduce this), it seems harmless unless the test mbx file is
loaded into a HTML aware mailer.

I'll make some changes to avoid picking up "strange" files from a work
directory, so we won't see this problem again.

I'll be handling the 0.92.2 release in David's stead and will make sure
we don't have this file in the 0.92.2 tarball.

Thanks for your reports!
