I specified UTF-8 conversion in my rcfile, yet whenever mhastart's "add"
routine is invoked (via the web), conversion is invariably not carried
out.  When I looked at the archive database I saw


, which looked okay (though I can't be certain).  Also, submitting the
shell command

mhonarc.pl -add -outdir $archive $mbox -rcfile $mrc

always worked.  So I forced the rcfile to be re-read with each -add by
modifying updatearchive, like so:

push @ARGV, ( $mbox, '-rcfile', $mrc ) unless $in{routine} eq 'remove';

This gave me the expected results but I remain puzzled as to why this
was necessary.  Any insight is appreciated.
