    Thanks for the report, I have a fix in CVS which will be released with
    1.61. The change is trivial, but I'd appreciate it if people would
    test it and let me know if it breaks anything else.

    To implement it, search for this line:

                    (\*=|=) # = or *= (RFC2231)

    and replace it with:
                    \s*(\*=|=)\s* # = or *= (RFC2231)
