AFAICT, Rimgaudaus is reporting that subject
"=?windows-1257?Q?=E0=FEe=E1=F8=EB=E6=FB?=" worked fine with
mailman-2.1.4 and doesnt work with mailman-2.1.5.  When using a
different encoding, e.g. "=?iso-8859-13?Q?=E0=FEe=E1=F8=EB=E6=FB?=",
works fine with both 2.1.4 and 2.1.5

Given the info, I decided to use the command line to run a simple test
-- messages to a user and to a list, i.e.:

  echo test | mail -s"$SUBJECT" user at osagesoftware.com
  echo test | mail -s"$SUBJECT" list at osagesoftware.com      

The admin page, i.e. mailman/admindb/test, shows "Subject: ??e???" which
is fine.  Both arrived correctly and my MUA shows the subject as
"__e___" which is acceptable.

I'm using mailman-2.1.5 on Mandrake 10.0 with python-2.3.3
