I am Cc-ing this reply to mailman-developers because of update in pointers.

Try these patch.

<prefix>/pythonlib/email/Header.py patch. Description;
Latest patch;

Additionally, this patch for <srcdir>/Mailman/Handlers/CookHeaders.py for
better prefixing subject (use number or not). Description;
Latest patch for Mailman-2.1.1;

You should also check if your MUA is compliant to RFC-2822/2047.
(Hmm, you are using Mutt/1.5.3i ...)
