Your email was not properly encoded by the time it reached me (see the ?
in crucial places), so I may be missing something.
I am guessing you are in a Danish locale with codepage CP1252, and
fortunately the subject line appears to have worked. I think I have a
reproduction test, in which case this will be fixed in R-patched shortly
(but please test that for us).
No one reported this in the alpha/beta/RC test period, and we do know that
the Japanese did some testing of the new features. I guess that real
testing started yesterday ....
Thanks for the report -- if you find further misfeatures it would be
helpful to have the locale and an email in a marked encoding.
