Afaik this is correct, the headers have to be encoded using this weird
scheme, you can't directly put UTF-8 there. Then, it'd be nice to decode
it when pasting elsewhere.

Anyway, those two bugs are upstream issues, please report them directly
to upstream bugzilla, the evolution team has not manpower for that,
