I like this bug. It should convince people that using PGP/MIME will be the
Kai, the problem is correctly identified: the long version line.
The question is: who breaks it into two lines? The sender or the recipient?
MUAs should not send lines longer than 76 chars, so at a first guess it could
be on the sending side.
OTOH, the sending side could be breaking the line correctly, with a '=' at the
end in the quoted-printable output. Then it would be sylpheeds fault for not
correctly reassembling that line (inline is a signature on the *decoded* mail
body, as opposed to PGP/MIME, where the signature is done on the encoded body
as it is sent over the network).
