Chong Yidong has fixed some similar issues in smtpmail.el using
with-case-table / ascii-case-table, see

See <http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/68859> for the quite
long discussion about this problem (Subject: ... Locale Dependent

<address@hidden> reported this problem, so I'd guess it has
been fixed by Chong Yidong's change.

Bye, Reiner.
