I found the problem, thanks for the sample. The offending header
looked like this:

Content-Disposition: attachment;

In my test, this resulted in a filename with a .pp__t extension,
caused by the newline/tab combination when the header was split
between lines. This is something I should obviously fix. :)

The problem where the underscore is converted into a space is a
little more subtle, and has to do with how I decode quoted-printable
in message headers, but I think I know how to fix it too. This is
just one of many little details to do with RFC compliance of the
sanitizer that need work. I'll try and bang together a fixed version
of the sanitizer sometime within the next few days and share it with
you guys.

Thanks for the feedback!
