[Savannah-hackers] notification e-mail bug

First, thank you for fixing the notification system. It was painful that 
it was not working.

Well, I found a really minor bug again. In the notification e-mail from 
the bug tracker, the name of a person who changes a bug is used in the 
From field. But the name is not quoted correctly, so it generates an 
invalid format, if the name contains any unsafe character. For example, 
I have registered "Yoshinori K. Okuji" as my name. Then, the bug 
tracker generates this line:

From: Yoshinori K. Okuji <address@hidden>

But '.' (dot) is not allowed to appear as a phrase, because it is 
defined as one of the specials (RFC 822). So it is necessary to quote 
the name like this:

From: "Yoshinori K. Okuji" <address@hidden>
