Oops -- this doesn't apply to message bodies, which just get half-written without leaving the buffer in an inconsistent state.

If IMAIL is interrupted while inserting a MIME entity (or a message's body), it leaves the buffer in an inconsistent state, unable to unexpand the MIME entity.  Selecting a different message and returning to it just retries inserting the entity, which may take as long as bored the user to C-g in the first place.
