A known problem in my TODO list; this is an interaction of tex2mail
shortcoming and of a side effect of a fix I did a month ago.

Now, when I checked it, TeX understands \left(1\over y\right) as if
\left/\right create a group; tex2mail does not.  [Earlier PARI would
put an extra level of braces there.]  Will look.
