I've tried to reproduce, also with encoding via `base64-encode-region',
and decoding via `mimencode -u -b'. No problem.

I've even decoded the data you've provided manually, saved the
resulting file, copied it to "/sudo::/tmp", and compared your and my
debug buffer. The encoded data are identical. Strange.

Could you, please, tell the emacs-version, the tramp-version, and the
metamail version you are using? For me, it is Emacs 21.3.50, Tramp
2.0.47 (mostly), and (Debian) metamail 2.7-46.

Best regards, Michael.
