Looks like this is a "technically correct, but useless" problem - the
email has a transfer encoding of quoted-printable, which is
encoding '<space><newline>' as '<space>=<newline><newline>'.
However, most people aren't using the mbox files as actual mbox, so
perhaps an 8-bit raw encoding of utf-8 would be more appropriate.
Will get a change done and pushed to patchwork.ozlabs soon.
