Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Tabs in long subjects (a really really really long subject line,

Something in the transmission path for mails to wireshark-dev (I assume it's the wireshark.org Mailman, but who knows) seems to be wrapping Subject: lines incorrectly. Essentially it replaces a space in the subject with a CRLF followed by a tab.
According to RFC822 (3.1.1) "Unfolding is accomplished by regarding CRLF 
immediately followed by a LWSP-char as equivalent to the LWSP-char" - 
ie, [CR][LF][HT] is equivalent to [HT].
This makes Thunderbird display a little binary '0009' symbol rather than 
the intended space. It's more annoying than anything else, but could 
something be done about it?
Cheers
