This should be fixed in release 0.61 (thanks to commit af7cd32d1843791a942febbd5f8e14a471e0772d )

Could you please check that it now works for you, and reopen the bug if not?

Thanks for your report (and your patience)

While monitoring Linux-Kernel -list delivery errors, all the sudden a quilt produced patch bounced somewhere because message content does not correctly state that there will be coming 8th-bit set bytes in the content.

Here are all headers that the message had (minus Received: and some other irrelevant ones that transit systems had added)

Subject: [patch 6/7] Immediate Values - Documentation
Content-Disposition: inline; filename=immediate-values-documentation.patch

The important missing ones are:
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-15
One can debate on the charset value, possibly also the Content-Type, but it must be defined. Also the "MIME-Version: 1.0" header MUST be there.
