Sorry, somehow I overlooked your mention of the version in the OP.

Anyway, this is definitely a scrubber issue. I see why it occurs, but
I'm not yet sure how to fix it. The problem is when the character set
of the translation returned by

  _('-------------- next part --------------\n')

is not compatible with the character set of the message being scrubbed,
the translation can be garbled.

I think we should be using the character set of the list's preferred
language rather than the character set of the message in this case,
but the process is complicated and I'm not sure how to do it.

If you want, you can try the attached scrubber.patch.txt (apply to
