This happens in the background when you are composing and are using
It only happens when there are images in the text some people use in
their emails, and you are including that text, which people do
frequently when replying to someone's email.
It does not always happen. So I do not know what particular images
cause this, and which do not. The problem only goes away when you
manually find and delete the offending image (usually a tiny thing).
