verification failed when the signer key was unavailable (empty "sigstatus" field

version required for building notmuch (gmime-2.4 is still available). As a
consequence the version check in test/crypto can be removed.

[Added by db]

Although less unambigously a bug, Gmime 2.6 prior to 2.6.7 also was
more strict about parsing, and rejected messages with initial "From "
headers.  This restriction is relaxed in [2].  For reasons explained in [3],
we want to keep this more relaxed parsing for now.

reset the state of the buffer, then we consider that a navigation
