Blank Subject in Notices to System Administrators (Exim)

I am running MailScanner 4.11 + Exim patch from Nick, and I notice (pun
intended) that all of my Notices to System Administrators have a blank
Subject field.  I have Notices Include Full Headers = yes, and I can see the
real subject in the full headers below, but the summary before the Full
headers just has a blank subject.

Here's an example:

The following e-mail messages were found to have viruses in them:

    Sender: <yjworks at>
IP Address:
 Recipient: xxxx at
 MessageID: 18ag8j-0004BD-00
    Report: /18ag8j-0004BD-00/Notes.exe        Found the W32/Yaha.k virus
Notes.exe contains Yaha.K
Executable DOS/Windows programs are dangerous in email (Notes.exe)

Full headers are
 Received: from [] (mail)
        by with esmtp (Exim 3.35 #1 (Debian))
        id 18ag8j-0004BD-00; Mon, 20 Jan 2003 12:55:17 -0500
 Received: from (
        by with smtp (Exim 3.12 #1 (Debian))
        id 18ag8h-0000F2-00; Mon, 20 Jan 2003 12:55:15 -0500
 From: Jonathan<yjworks at>
 To: xxxx at
 Subject: Things to note
 Date: Mon,20 Jan 2003 12:55:10 PM
 X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 5.50.4133.2400
 MIME-Version: 1.0
 Message-Id: <E18ag8h-0000F2-00 at>

Is anyone else having this problem?  Obviously this is not a big deal since
email is still getting scanned, and I do have the subject in the full
headers.  My guess is that this is Exim specific.
