List oddity

I just noticed that the list processor appears to be
inserting a no-break space (0xA0) in front of 8859-1 characters (see my .sig
below). At least I think it is the Unicode list because it does not happen
locally or on other mailing lists.

Here is the name in UTF-8 just to see what happens to it:
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Mark Leisher "A designer knows he has achieved perfection
Computing Research Lab not when there is nothing left to add, but
New Mexico State University when there is nothing left to take away."
Box 30001, Dept. 3CRL -- Antoine de Saint-Exup éry
Las Cruces, NM 88003
