 It's quite possible. The comments on the patch that Julian applied read as

        # Overload the MIME quoted-printable decoder.
        # This version will make lines that end in \n now end in \r\n.
        # This hopefully fixes problems with PDF files as they are now
        # correctly.

 So it sounds like the cause to me, but most likely it's something Julian
will have to look into.
