The patch probably changed more than just mail.h and mail.c.

Could have a short function strip it.

char *stripstring(char *foo)
  char buf[MAX_STRING_LENGTH];
  int len = strlen(foo), i, n;

  for (i = 0, n = 0; i <= len; i++)
    if (foo[i] != '\r')
      buf[n++] = foo[i];

  buf[n] = '\0';
  return str_dup(buf);

Although I can't confirm that works. :)

This is 'liberal use of debugging printfs' territory.
