Yes, I also saw that when I looked into the code...

IMHO there are tiny but important differences between "real" forward and
continue. When forwarding a message, all parts of the original message should
be attachments to the new one. There is no reason that the user changes any
part of the original, including text bodies.

In contrast with continue, the first text part will usually be changed before
sending (why else should the user postpone a mail?).

I am currently looking into the code and trying to find a solution. It's
already half-way finished...
