I can't read it off hand, but that's just Japanese text in the
Internet standard ISO-2022-JP encoding.

I think it's possible to tell Gnus not to display mail or MIME parts
in the ISO-2022-JP encoding, but then you don't get to see the mail at
You could use a Mule XEmacs, or avoid Gnus. Gnus is not an MUA, it's
an Emacs torture test. (I'm half serious---I far prefer VM for mail,
but with the exception of my Red Hat Sparc/Linux libc 5 + some 4
+ some 6 that I was running in 1998, I've seen more crashes in Gnus
than all other contexts combined, so I run Gnus).

I'd suggest a full bug report with M-x report-xemacs-bug. Maybe
there's something odd about your configuration; I know that several
people are using no-Mule XEmacsen 21.4 with Gnus and reading this list.
First try a clean replication. Copy the file into a fresh temporary
directory somewhere. Restart XEmacs with the -vanilla switch. Start
Gnus. Try reading the file as a mailbox, etc (Gnus provides several
ways) until you find one that works. See if you crash.
Then restart and format and send the report.
