Note:  I procmail filter messages.  CC's typically get filed to list
rather than my inbox.  I only check leafnode a few times a week.  If
you've got a personal message for me, send it directly to me, not as a
CC.  If anyone has a procmail recipie to pick up CCs and dispose of them
differently, I'm more than happy to hear about it.

I've confirmed this is not my mailer.  Posts to other lists *do* have
the full MIME header, though it spills to two lines.  I suspect a
listserver bug.

I've had problems with RFC 2015 compliance issues with other list
managers, notably LISTSERV, which translates tabs to spaces in signed
content, corrupting signature hashes.  Mutt itself is written by the
author of RFC 2015, Michael Elkins, and I'd tend to suspect that of any
MUA, its own compliance is highly probable.

I'm running Debian/Sid (unstable), the latest version of mutt available
is 1.3.15-2.  I'd held back mutt due to some conflicts a ways back, am
currently upgrading.

I'd suggest filing this as a bug against the Berolist maintainer.
