Bad header (was: Why “fellowship”?)

I found two mails of you in my spam folder because the header contains 8
bit characters.  For ages I check that so to sort out Chinese mail/spam.
However, the original poster or someone later encoded the subject this
way (showed using C escapes):

  Subject: Re: Why \342\200\234fellowship\342\200\235?

Martin's mail encoded it correctly, but your mailer didn't.  Let's see
whether my Gnus gets it right.
