 Chances are high that Evo tried to treat the body as iso1.
 Could you try to use first part's charset as charset of the attachment if no charset is specified in headers (or better allow to select charset to treat attachment with)?

+the problem is that parts do not know about other parts. This is just
+the way things *have* to work, they should not have to know about
+other parts' Content-* headers.
+With IMAP, you can request individual MIME parts (and we use this
+feature in Evolution).
+That said, the filename *should* be appearing correctly. Even though
+the name/filename params are encoded incorrectly, I added a
+special-hack for that a while ago when I added support for rfc2184
+because Outlook's broken way of encoding parameters is somewhat common
+amongst the more commonly used mailers.
+The only possible solution to this that I would be willing to do is to
+use the charset given in the parameter encoding?
+Rhetoric question:
+remind me again why it's *our* job to fix brokenness in other mailers?
+especially when they are proprietary? argh... this is why writing a
+mail client is a PITA while at the same time being a thankless job.
