Hi all

I have just noticed this thread...

The name shows up correctly both in the message list and the message preview, 
in KMail 1.9.9, KDE 3.5.9. opensuse 11.0

So I would say the guys at Debian Sid have removed the decoding function 
(which would convert "=?utf-8?b?z..." to "Γιώργος Μιχαλογιωργάκης"), or they 
have modified it - and thus generated an error, which makes this function 
return its input, unmodified

Either way, I believe Debian Sid should be contacted about this one :)
