Does anyone else's mailer refuse to process messages from r-help in
"quoted-printable" encoding?  Pine 3.92 barfs on the
r-help banner added to the end of the message, because the
banner uses 'minus' and 'equals' in a repeating pattern.
Since 'equals' is the 'escape' character for quoted-printable
encoding, it should only appear as the lead-in to an encoded octet
or a <CR><LF> pair.  The 'equal' 'minus' pair _can_ be used
in a multipart delimiter, so perhaps that was the intention
and the 'multipart' header is getting trashed somewhere.
