Correction:  In my .mailcap on bolt I have:
text/html       ; lynx -dump -force_html %s ; copiousoutput
So on bolt I was looking at the html copy of the message.
The quoted-printable text portion still contains unprintable characters.

Since I see this on various machines with both text and X based mail
apps, I'm going with the assumption that my client's user agent
is not playing nice.  But what do you expect from a Microsoft
application written for OSX ?
