No, the existing code simply uses the undecoded string.

What I argue for is to do this:

diff --git a/lisp/gnus/mm-view.el b/lisp/gnus/mm-view.el

Please don't be offended, there's no intent to offend you here.  Your
efforts are greatly appreciated.  We are just discussing a small
change to what you were proposing, see above.

Or are you saying that using undecided as above doesn't do the job?

(Sorry, I don't use Gnus, so to be able to reproduce the problem and
test a proposed solution I need detailed instructions, I cannot easily
do it myself without investing an inordinate amount of time.)
