[sylpheed:35620] Re: I cannot see base64-encoded messages

Just a small new detail about my situation:

I was able to see the message correctly under Windows (XP, 32 bit).
It was Sylpheed version 3.3.0, originally zipped (no install).

So, it is possible that a library is missing which de-encodes the
message from base64.

Any ideas?
