I get the following traceback. I created a patch against email/ from SVN branch python2.7

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/email/", line 93, in decode_header
    dec = email.quoprimime.header_decode(encoded)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/email/", line 336, in header_decode
    return re.sub(r'=\w{2}', _unquote_match, s)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/", line 150, in sub
    return _compile(pattern, 0).sub(repl, string, count)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/email/", line 324, in _unquote_match
    return unquote(s)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/email/", line 106, in unquote
    return chr(int(s[1:3], 16))
ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 16: 'ih'

Heh, cut and paste gone mad, sorry about that title change/change back.

I can reproduce this in 3.2, so adding 3.1 and 3.2 to versions.

Here is Thomas's patch with a (simpler) unit test included.

Committed in r85142 for 3.2, r85143 for 3.1, and r85144 for 2.7.

Thanks, Thomas.
