[Mailman-Users] headers - sometimes - getting "munched"

I've got a problem where sometimes the headers to the list get 
slightly munched. I've got a two line header for the non-digest 
messages. The second line is equal signs used as underscore.

The setting:
Header added to mail sent to regular list members
has as its value

               Undercover  -  The Rolling Stones Mailing List

(note that I have tried it with and without a trailing carriage return)

Most posts come through just fine, but some members always have their 
header truncated - only the first line is included and then 
immediately the body of the message...

Here is one example...

               Undercover  -  The Rolling Stones Mailing List

(immediately after that line it went into the body of the message)

FWIW, I did spend some time with the FAQ before I posted this.

Thanks for any help,
