[MlMt] PGP/MIME support question.

I received an email which the GPG engine in MailMate seems to have 
issues with.  It was sent with PGP/MIME as a mulitipart/mixed message.  
Unfortunately, MailMate shows it as two separate attachments, and 
doesn't seem to be able to decrypt the message at all.  I had to save 
the .asc file and run gpg manually from the command line.

The MIME components are:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

And then there was a second component (all with the boundary correctly 

Content-Type: application/pgp-encrypted;
	name="PGPMIME Versions Identification"
Content-Description: PGP/MIME Versions Identification
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="PGPMIME Versions 
	size=76; creation-date="removed";
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

And the final part was:

Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="encrypted.asc"
Content-Description: OpenPGP encrypted message.asc
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="encrypted.asc"; size=9223;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

I manually removed the date/time stamp, but, it was correct.

The source was allegedly:

x-pgp-agent: GPGMail

Is there some tweak that could be made either in my GPG config or in 
MailMate to be able to correctly handle these sorts of messages?
