This is caused by failure of the HTML -> Text rendering engine.  It
triggers on email (or comments/correspondence) which need to be
embedded into plain-text templates; the most common failing case is
HTML that includes tables.

We're testing a branch (4.2/html-external-formatter) which we expect to
be in 4.2.10; it addresses the problem by adding an optional dependency
(HTML::FormatExternal) which uses an external text-only browser
(such as w3m or elinks) to render the HTML to text.
