Hi, I got some mails with multilines (or loong lines, dunno) which are splitted in a strange way).

I get something like that:

Sujet : Re: [linux-lvm] PVs not found (kernel 2.4<->devfs?) [was:
lvm lost

For local (non-IMAP) mailboxes, Balsa gets the subject from GMime, and displays it in a GtkTextView. Apparently, GMime doesn't unfold headers, so a long and folded subject still has its newline(s), and the following white space that makes it a continuation of the original header (in your example, after "lvm lost"). But its first line still may be long enough to be wrapped in the text-view (in your example, after "[was:".

I believe a case can be made for displaying the subject the way GMime hands it over: the sender may have specifically formatted it that way. On the other hand, perhaps it's more likely that the sender's MUA folded a long line and added the white space, in which case unfolding it, removing the white space, and allowing the text-view to wrap the result is closer to what the sender intended.
