Are your mail encoded with B64 unless you have that line?

It may be that the heuristics for selecting between B64 and QP makes
B64 "win" on very small test messages with characters with the 8:th
bit set, but for normal mail QP should win.

If you always get B64 this is quite serious bug, but I can't reproduce
it and alot of the Gnus mail with latin-1 I receive is QP.
