Remove the check that the extended message in qdel doesn't contain '='
Garrick pointed out on list that you cannot specify a message for qdel
with the -m option which includes an equals sign, there is a specific
check in qdel.c to reject such things.
There appears to be no reason for the check as the message is fed into
sendmail via a pipe once it is already running so there appears to be
no opportunity for misuse.
The attached patch (against 2.4 fixes) removes the check.
Patch applied to 2.4-fixes, trunk, and 3.0-alpha branches.
