I have already fixed this (couple of days ago) and this will be included in
the security release of MailScanner 3 and 4 that I will be doing in a day
It's not actually very important at all, it doesn't affect the virus
scanning. It only affects the attachment filenames, it does not affect the
contents of the attachments.
It's a MIME-tools problem, which fortunately I have worked around without
anyone needing to patch the MIME-tools modules themselves.
