Comment (by takayukister):

 For easy reproduction of this issue, I prepared example text for mail


 This is Japanese text. This will be encoded with
 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Base64 Base64] encoding.

 [Trausch’s Little Home] Please moderate: "Well, it’s good I don’t use IE…"

 And this is trauschus's original subject text (trauschus, sorry for my
 unauthorized use). This will be encoded with [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki
 /Quoted-Printable Quoted-printable] encoding.

 On current WordPress (+phpMailer), you see garbage characters in both
 cases of above example.

 To make testing easy, I wrote simple plugin for sending mails. Please use
