I'm quite sure that there's something bogus in your setup.  I haven't
used Gnus 5.9 since ages, but I guess it should not show this problem
(unless you use standard-display-european).

Could you upgrade to Gnus 5.10.8 or upgrade to CVS Emacs (some
distributions offer it as emacs-snapshot or similar) which includes a
more recent Gnus version and see it the problem persists?

Else, can you send me one of the problematic mails as gzipped
attachment (secret stuff x-ed out)?  If the problem also appears in
news or mailing list article you could simply give us the Message-Id
or the URL to an mbox file if available.

Bye, Reiner.
