[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#656243: roundcube-core: File name of attachment displayed incorrectly

Package: roundcube-core
Version: 0.5.4
Severity: important

When I compose a mail and attach a file with extra characters in it,
then the file name of the attachment on the sent mail is displayed
incorrectly - as if with a wrong encoding.

This problem exists only on the user interface. On both server side and
at the recipient side the file name of the attachment appears good.
What more, sending mail from a mail client (Thunderbird or Oulook)
doesn't bring up any issues either. It is only according to mails that
are sent from within Roundcube.

The solution to the problem is tracked down in this thread:

On Debian, both the backported version of Roundcube 0.5.4 and the
current unstable version 0.7 is packaged to be depended on the PHP Pear
modul Mail_Mime 1.8.0 which is incorrect.

The folloing command solves it on a Debian 6 box:
pear install mail_mime

The following files get changed by this:

So the backported version, the testing and the unstable version of
Roundcube (roundcube-core) should be packaged with php-mail-mime
version 1.8.2, which is the current latest version of the upstream
Mail_Mime PHP Pear modul.
