Description of problem:
attachments created by evolution are extracted with ";" appended.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always if the file name is not quoted (say, does not contain spaces).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take the attached email message created by evolution.
2. run uudeview on the file.
3. Verify that the two extraced files have ";" appended to their real name.
$ uudeview -i 1124636005.3427.otthon.memphis.edu\:2\,S
Loaded from 1124636005.3427.otthon.memphis.edu:2,S: 'a and b' (a): a.html; part

This is an x86_64 FC4 system. Of course, it is possible that evolution is
not conforming to some rfc's.
I can reproduce this. A message created with mutt, however, doesn't show this
behaviour so I tend to blame evolution. The best would probably be to have a
look at the correct RFC. I will attach my example from mutt. I will also try to
reach the upstream author for a statement.
