Subject: MIME::Parser set wrong mimetype for empty entities
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 282b
When parsing a mail containing a completely empty MIME part (just the repetition of two boundaries) MIME::Parser returns an entity. When calling the method mime_type on such entity I get as a result the string "text/plain; charset=us-ascii" instead of the expected "text/plain".
