It took me a while until I encountered the problem again (I'm at the
university less often, they no longer paying me...).  I did (as root)

echo fasel | exim4 -d frank at kuesterei.ch

and that was fast, so maybe it's still emacs/gnus...  I have no ideay
how to really check that, except that once more I'm now going to exit
