For some reason, it seems the subject isn't decoded. Can anyone spot if
there's a problem with the syntax, or if it's an Evo bug ? (in which
case I'll do a proper bugreport).
The syntax is wrong.  It looks like the mailer that sent it tried to
do content quoted-printable line wrapping, which is totally incorrect
in this context!

The string can't contain any spaces, including linear white space.
The whole token is supposed to be less than 76 characters  for this
purpose, so that any folding (wrapping on multiple lines) is outside
the token boundaries.

From rfc2047, the relevent rfc, it is pretty clear and quite explicit
about how the headers should be interpreted.  Subject is a text field.

hi, a bit off topic but I wantet to ask this for ages now ;)

Your posts, Not Zed, often do not behave nicely. The lines do not wrap
and are difficult to read - see Attachement.

Why is that? 

Could you try and configure your Evolution to not produce such long
lines? they are really bad to read

thank you
