I've applied the version of the fix that was shipped by Debian.

Enscript doesn't highlight folded header lines (see RFC 2822, 2.2.3 and 3.2.3) in email messages correctly.

To verify this, run `enscript -E' on the following message:

--- cut here ---
From: Me <me>
Date: Sat, 07 Jul 2007 11:54:02 +0200
Subject: enscript highlighting test
To: You <you>,
Hime <him>,
Her <her>

Doesn't work as expected: does it?
--- cut here ---

The second and third recipients will be highlighted as if they were header names, and the body line will be highlighted as if it was a header line.

The attached patch fixes this problem.
