Description David Woodhouse 2006-11-29 09:55:21 UTC
A mail with this subject line was sent to a mailman list:


Mailman sent it out again like this:

Subject: =?UTF-8?Q?[MTD]=20NAND:=20CAF=C3=89=20NAND=20driver=20cleanup,

The first was RFC2047-compliant; the second wasn't. Mailman broke it.

I originally filed an Evolution bug (bug 217631) but upon closer inspection of
RFC2047 (and verifying that it's happening in transit through mailman) I think
it's actually mailman that's at fault.

Thanks :) I was about to do the same... added my comment there..

Fixing the length of the encoded-word doesn't help (in this case) -- it seems to
be the comma which triggers the line-wrap.

I really don't know what to do with this one... The SF bug has no resolution
either and the discussion died. Closing with CANTFIX.
