[Mailman-Users] Mailman eating whitespaces in subject

Hey together,

I found a weird bug in mailman-2.1.1. It seems mailman is removing
whitespaces from the subject line if the subject contains 8-bit
characters like æ ä or similar.

Just try sending a mail to a testlist running mailman-2.1.1 with the
subject "Emne tekst på email til flug listerne" and reply a couple of
times. It's eating spaces randomly.

Subjects like "ä ë ü and subject whitespaces" will also demonstrate it.
