Sorry, I should have been more precise: the shar(1) archive from the
original submission is just fine, because it was sent by the send-pr.

But the shar(1) archives from the followups resulted from the fixes of
the port content were sent by the ordinary mailer as attachments and
were attachments were encoded as quoted-printable.  query-pr.cgi
currently is not good at handling them and giving away unencoded content
in all cases.  I have plans to improve query-pr.cgi, but not instantly.
