When I send a message with an attachment to my mailing list, the
name of the attachment is broken in the archive.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
---------------------- multipart/mixed attachment

In this mail, I've attached a PowerPoint file to the mail.   However,
Mailman/pipermail stores the file as foo.obj.  This also happens with
JPEGs which are stored as bar.jpe.

Because of the messed up name, I cannot just click on the link to see
the attachment.  At least Galeon displays the binary contents as text,
instead of invoking the proper display routine.

Using Mailman 2.1b5.

What to do?
