There is one point in the CookHeader.py where we abort prefixing:
             prefix_subject(mlist, msg, msgdata)
         except (UnicodeError, ValueError):
             # TK: Sometimes subject header is not MIME encoded for 8bit
             # simply abort prefixing.
This means your clients should be MIME compliant if they want to get 
full service from Mailman. :-(
But, in this case, no prefix should appear in the pipermail archive.

I may be able to subscribe to your list and get some mail and browse the 
archive if your list policy accepts.
