As promised on gnu.emacs.vm.info, vm-always-use-presentation-buffer should be deprecated in 8.1.1 (and set to t by default).

Despite setting vm-always-use-presentation-buffer being set to t, this internal error arises fairly often whenever replying to a plain text message. This needs to be looked at.

Added a fix in revno. 781 through a hacky patch. In reality, the entire previewing/paging code is very complex and intertwined. This patch is the best we can do at this point. The entire code needs to be re-engineered some time.
