[bug #20252] [ #336933] RFC2047 header encoding bug

Follow-up Comment #4, bug #20252 (project mhonarc):

Hi, I'm the person who reported this problem to sysadmins.

Given that, what I'm imagining has happened is that in the first
case, the UTF-8 characters are assumed to be iso-8859-1, an 8 bit 
character encoding, and are written as the first byte of the
UTF-8 encoding; however in the second case, I'm supposing that it 
is properly transcoding from utf-8 to latin1.

Sounds plausible.  I suspect what makes it behave differently is that in the
first case, subject is base64-encoded (in the second it isn't).

I'm afraid I can't really help.  I have zero knowledge about MHonArc
internals (and am not very fluent in perl either).  Sorry.
