I don't know why this didn't work unless it contains trailing
whitespace (leading whitespace is removed before matching). However,
if you are trying to match the 'word' remove, I would use

   Subject: \Wremove\W

See <http://docs.python.org/library/re.html#regular-expression-syntax>

Note that bounce_matching_headers (and header_filter_rules) are matched
case insensitively.
