It has been hard work, but I think I found that Bug: There is A problem in
Mail::Header from MailTools-1.15.

MIMEObj->head->add somehow is confused if the line is to long and does
LineBreak inproperly, resulting in a blank line in the header.

I have a workaround, which prevents the header-lines from beeing wraped.
But I think the Best way would be to find the Bug in Mail::Header.

I hope that helps :)
