Description: ------------ If the filename of an attachment contains (single) quote(s) the parsing of that header part fails under certain conditions (not always). The method returns that part unchanged (fallback). Long filenames that are split into several parts seem to be a condition when this happens. Test script: --------------- Content-Type: audio/mpeg; name*0="Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five - It's Nasty (Genius of L"; name*1="ove).mp3"

This appears to be due to the fact that the original implementation tried to also use single quotes to match quoted-string values in a header field. RFC 2822 only defines DQUOTE as the valid character to surround a quoted-string, so I believe this is wrong. If you remove the escaped single-quotes from the regex in _parseHeaderValue, it should work as expected.
