OK, I missed the initial caret in the regex. The mustquote regex is
listing everything that needn't be quoted, and then negating. I still
think it's wrong, though. According to BNF given in the Formal Syntax
section of RFC 3501, you must must quote atom-specials, which are
defined thus:

atom-specials   = "(" / ")" / "{" / SP / CTL / list-wildcards /
                  quoted-specials / resp-specials
list-wildcards  = "%" / "*"
quoted-specials = DQUOTE / "\"
resp-specials   = "]"

So I think this regex should do it:

mustquote = re.compile(r'[()\s%*"]|"{"|"\\"|"\]"')

Changing status to bug.
