Binary package hint: evolution

I'm encountering this bug since a few weeks too.

While expecting a proper solution, you can read your full mails by clicking in the content of your mail, which partially frees scrolling. Juste re-click to see more next.

Here is a full description of the bug I do encounter:

1) Download my example mail (http://forum.heible.free.fr/EvolutionHtmlBug/)
2) Under Evolution, do File/Import/Single file
3) Try reading this mail: special caracters are not displayed as they should. For example: http://forum.heible.free.fr/EvolutionHtmlBug/Capture.png instead of:

"La loi de modernisation de la fonction publique du 2 février 2007 et son décret d'application du 2 mai 2007 ont défini un nouveau régime que présente la circulaire, issue d’un important travail avec les ministères employeurs."

And if you click on one HTML link, the mail view will return on its top, which will make reading the full mail a pain.

Sorry for my poor english!
