Thanks for the report, but I believe this is not an issue in mutt.
The mail message attached says it is encoded in base64, which is true for the message itself, except the footer, which is most probably appended by the mailing-list daemon. This part is obviously not encoded, which is wrong. mutt only does its part and simply decodes the whole message, which results in the junk, instead of the footer.
I'd say the mailing-list daemon should parse the message header in this case and if it finds a base64-encoded message, it should encode the appended footer as well.
