Found it, Mailman is to blame. On the linux-kernel mailing list, the
address shows up ok: "=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Hans-J=FCrgen_?=
=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Koch?= <hjk@linutronix.de>".

What probably happens: Mailman tries to check if the addresses in the
To and CC fields are subscribed to the list (linux-arm-kernel). If that
is the case and the subscriber enabled "prevent doubles", it won't send
that particular subscriber the message. Of course, this should have
been implemented by a simple strncmp() on the To and CC fields, but I
guess Mailman first breaks up the To and CC fields, then does the
"prevent double" check, and then reassembles the To and CC fields.
Apparently there is an error in the break up or reassembly. Now how to
fix this without breaking Mailman alltogether...

In the mean time, could you just use Hans-Jürgen's address
(hjk@linutronix.de>) and not his name in the CC field?
