[Python-Dev] Found a bug!

Well, I was debugging a Mailman user's problem when I hit what I think
is a bug in mimelib/email pkg. I don't yet know if this is related to
the MM bug because I can't get as far through the code, but you don't
care about that. :)
I believe mimelib is not handling RFC 2231 headers such as the following
filename*2="is it not.pdf"
Try creating a message with a header like this and doing a
msg.get_filename() on it -- you'll get a TypeError. The bug is that
get_filename() isn't prepared for a missing language parameter.
The fix is probably simple, and I'll try to resist doing too much
refactoring <wink>. I'll check in a test case and a patch and backport
it to the Python 2.3.1 and 2.2.4 branches.
