That's a perfectly legitimate Subject: line... RFC822 lists the Subject:
header as *text, where text is
text = any CHAR, including bare ; => atoms, specials,
CR & bare LF, but NOT ; comments and
including CRLF> ; quoted-strings are
; NOT recognized.
a CHAR type is any ASCII character in the numeric decimal range of 0-127.
So, to reiterate, folding Subject: headers are valid...
