First, you may want to check out <http://www.mhonarc.jp/> for
Japanese-specific usage information MHonArc.  There should also
be links to a Japanese-based mailing list which may be useful.

As for your specific problem, you may need disable URL linking.
This can be done by specify -nourl on the command-line or
<NOURL> in your resource file.  The '&' is a legal URL character,
and MHonArc does not try to interpret what character entity reference
values resolve to to determine if it should be included.

The URL linking code is a single regex operation.

I'm not sure at this time on what code changes could be done.
If you go with ISO-2022-JP encoding for your archives, it may
avoid this problem.
