Well before I added latin-9 support to my libc I got a lot of crap
trying to display that message. WTF...why does KMail use latin-9 when
there are no euro signs instead of using the most-compatible encoding
that supports all the chars in the message (latin-1) or else utf-8?!
Anyway with latin-9 added it looks visually correct, but still KMail
inserted nbsp instead of normal spaces which would cause major
problems if someone tried to apply an inline patch..
