refile: Never change the current folder

Refile is different to all other tools, as its +folder arguments
are destination folders, not source folders (it even supports

Refile used to change the current folder to the source folder.
It does not do so anymore.

Most often the current folder is used as the source folder; this is
the default. Hence changing the current folder is a no-op. But if
one refiles from some other source folder, changing to that folder
is seldom useful. Consider the scenario where one wants to collect
the last messages of a set of folders in some other folder. The
old behavior required to know where you are to collect the messages,
because after the first refile you'd be somewhere else:

for i in one two three ; do
refile -src +$i l +lastmsgs
# now we are in +three, hence go back where we were
folder +lastmsgs

The new behavior allows to move the messages just here (@), no
matter where that is:

for i in one two three ; do
refile -src +one l @
# now we still are where we were

Refiling actions do no more affect the current folder, hence one
may securely refile with different -src +folder many times in one
row, without having to care for changing locations.

Fix order of (trim) and (decode) in repl*comps

i.e. set the internal str register to the component text, trim
trailing whitespace from it, then print the value. Later (putstr)
was simply replaced by (decode), which first RFC-2047 decodes the
string and then prints it (if it is the outermost function). That
almost always produced the correct result. But this way the
whitespace trimming is done at the wrong point. Correct is to first
decode the string and then trim it. tests/scan/test-mh-format
checks for that.
