[Mailman-Developers] iso-something subjects

there's been an annoying bug with Mailman, but I never took the time to
mention it. Say my list is adding "[spip] " to the subject line if it is not

I send:
Subject: Macédoine ?

Mailman receives
Subject: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Mac=E9doine_?=

Mailman sends:
Subject: [spip] =?iso-8859-1?Q?Mac=E9doine_?=

I reply, Mailman receives something that must look like (I don"t have the
exact example at hand):
Subject: Re: =?iso-8859-1?Q?%3Dspip%3D_Mac=E9doine_?=

does not see [spip], so adds it and sends
Subject: [spip] Re: =?iso-8859-1?Q?%3Dspip%3D_Mac=E9doine_?=

In my mailer it is then decoded as
Subject: [spip] Re: [spip] Macédoine

See? [spip] has been added twice. I guess the subsject line should be
iso-decoded before adding the tag, the (maybe?) iso-reencoded.
