Mailman Developers,

When we send the included file (see attachment to this email) through
Mailman 2.1b6 we get a URL region that starts with 

The following usual information such as the following is completely replaced
with the aforementioned string:
A non-text attachment was scrubbed... 
Name: filname.fileextension 
Type: application/octet-stream 
Size: filesize bytes 
Desc: not available...

We've noticed this in testing with a few jpg files and one PowerPoint file.
We've sent the mail through 'Outlook', but a download of the full raw
archive coming out of Sendmail appears to be OK in all cases.  In fact, the
section of the Mailman garbled URL in our Sendmail archive is as follows:
Content-Type: image/jpeg; name="creigsmith2.jpg" 
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 
Content-Disposition: attachment;

Thoughts?  Ideas?  Comments?  Feedback?
