Ok, I just looked at the source, it's actually a return that's not shown as a space.

Here's the actual subject:
Subject: [Build #1386500] lpia build of thunderbird-3.1
	3.1~a1~hg20091208r4502+nobinonly-0ubuntu1~umd1~jaunty in ubuntu

Micah can you attach a sample email reproducing the issue here ?

Does it happen in safe-mode too (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode)?

> Sample E-Mail that shows no space

Data of Subject: header is as follows:
({LF}==0x0A, {CRLF}==0x0D0A, {CR}==0x0D, {HTAB}==0x90, of ascii)
> Subject: [Bug 494965] Re: bugzilla plugin doesn't pull data from mozilla{LF}
> {HTAB}bugzilla{LF}

{HTAB} is removed by quirks?
(AFAIK, if no quirks, the {HTAB} was displayed as U+FFFD at Thread pane by Tb....)
If so, when the quirks was landed? By which bug? Or by extension?
The attached file named sample_email.txt is mime-type=text/plain.
How did you get the attached text/plain mail data?

What byte-code(of ascii) do you mean by the "Return" in your bug summary?
AFAIK, {HTAB}==0x09 was/had beeen/is never called "Return"...
Problem with HTAB in subject is bug 460443.

Do you use LiGothic or Heiti TC for UI font or font for mail display?
If yes, it may be similar issue to bug 532346. See also bug 530419, bug 532349.
