The behavior you object to is in fact correct per RFC 2046, 5.5.1:

   The boundary delimiter MUST occur at the beginning of a line, i.e.,
   following a CRLF, and the initial CRLF is considered to be attached
   to the boundary delimiter line rather than part of the preceding

So in your example message your attatched file does not in fact have a final newline.  Note that you do not get a newline regardless of whether decode is true ('p' is the part extracted from your sample message):

>>> p.get_payload()
>>> p.get_payload(decode=True)
