A diff of the sources of a mail that is mangled by KMail

Some mime message structures of IMAP messages are mangled by KMail or the IMAP
Akonadi component (please change the component in that case). Namely, border
strings are modified(!) and added, resulting in a message with invalid mime,
which cannot be parsed correctly anymore by KMail.

An example is given in attachment with a diff between the source as returned by
Thunderbird and as returned by KMail.

My guess is that KMail chokes on mime borders that are very similar or that it
cannot distinguish for some reason.
