Also, dovecot includes the boundary in the "length" of the body part in:

A3 OK [READ-ONLY] Select completed.
* 103 FETCH (BODYSTRUCTURE (("text" "plain" ("charset" "us-ascii") NIL
NIL "7bit" 15 3 NIL NIL NIL)("image" "gif" ("name"
"usenet-traffic-globe.gif") NIL NIL "base64" 81076 NIL ("attachment"
("filename" "usenet-traffic-globe.gif")) NIL) "mixed" ("boundary"
"=-u5ZQZIAhsi8nf+mzzgM1") NIL NIL))
A4 OK Fetch completed.

81076 includes the boundary shown above.
Sorry if this is entirely up the wrong tree.
And thanks for any advice.
