Hi Adrien,

Are you sure this is a storage problem, as opposed to a display problem? 
  I've previously looked at some cases of failing to display multipart 
messages, and all the cases that I looked at were just display problems.

Here's my fix for one such case: 
  If you review this, you'll see the code files that you (probably) need 
to look at improving further - I am sure that there are remaining 
multipart hierarchy cases to fix.

Also I might still have some work-in-progress here that I haven't 
considered ready for pushing to Radek - I'll check for that and let you 
know this evening.
