 Ah, yes, of course, this makes total sense, thanks for explaining it!

 Unfortunately all the examples I have are Review Board notification emails
sent to many people and with plenty of details about the internal code
base, so I don't think I can share this without redacting them heavily.
Please let me know if this could still be useful or I could try ask the
person in question to send me an email directly (because this is definitely
specific to this particular person, none of the other Review Board
notifications suffer from this problem). So far I've tried sending me
various emails with forged "From" header myself, but they don't trigger the
bug neither.

 OK, this works, thanks. Is there any way to compute this hash from the
command line for testing purposes?

 Thanks again,
