If I recall correctly when "quoted=printable" encoding is used, the "="
at the end of the line by its self is an indication to the receiving MUA
that the line is suppose to be unwrapped. I.e. remove the "=" from the
end of the "...attachments/200" line and add the "81119..." line to the end.
However if the quoted=printable MIME encoding is broken, things like
this will happen.
Will you please forward me one of the problem messages (as an attachment
because I need to see the message source) and I will verify this.

*nod* This is as I would expect.
Actually I bet that you are removing the "=" and adding the subsequent
line to the end of the URL, which is what quoted=printable is suppose to
do for you.

I think this is probably another small bug somewhere in Mailman in how
it handles / folds lines of text. Format=flowed (my preference) suffers
equally in older versions of Mailman.
