Not strange at all.  Here is the problem:

  User-Agent: Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 (X11/20070728)
  Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8; format=flowed
                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Biggest problem is 'format=flowed'; that screws up _all_ inlined text.
This is a PITA with most mailers :(
You should really consider reconfiguring that:

,----[ user.js ]
| pref("mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed", false); // RFC 2646
| pref("mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support", true);
`----

so you avoid both sending and receiving flawed^H^H^H^Howed email.
utf-8 is also known to cause paines.
