I see what's causing the problem now, sort of. This URL appears in a footer
appended by SourceForge:


The message has in it's header
   Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

which results in the '=cl' in the appended footer being interpreted as a
quoted-printable character code. The tiny attached example message is
sufficient to reproduce the behavior I saw.

It seems to me that SF is at fault here, for just slapping on a footer, but
I'm not sure how to proceed now.
