Yep.  Here's the start of message #4077:

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Content-Type: text/plain;
        charset="big5"                       <<< I don't think so
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

Dear MEMES Discussion Group,

Obviously that first message part is *not* encoded with big5, but you
try telling Mailman that.  Sigh.  I'll try editing the offending message
and seeing how far arch gets this time.

Oh yeah, should I be filing bug reports?
