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.
