SuSE 9.2: Problem with Tripwire reports sent via postfix

Hi everyone,

we recently installed the new 9.2 packages at our site.
we configured postfix as our MTA and set up daily tripwire-audits.
reports should be sent with "/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t" as the mailing
this stands for "do not take lines with a single dot as end of mail" and
"extract headers from mail content"
with our old SuSE 8.2 this worked fine and delivered nice tripwire-reports.

we ran into the problem that we are receiving mails with no headers set (to,
from, subject, date, ...)
it seems that this is a result of the switch to fully unicode support:
linebreaks are mis-interpreted and sometimes we get those typical
two-letter-unicode characters

the first lines of such a report look like:
Date: Thu 11 Nov 2004 15:30:53 +0100 From: "Tripwire(R)"
To: root@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
Subject: TWReport xxxxxxx 20041111153002 V:116 S:100 A:68 R:23 C:25
Content-Type: text/plain Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7-bit Message-Id:
Return-Path: root@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
X-OriginalArrivalTime: 11 Nov 2004 14:30:15.0109 (UTC)

Tripwire(R) 2.3.0 Integrity Check Report

any idea what we could do? my first guess would be the change of locales or
something like that.
