    Broken again :/

    Since you're using mutt, try manually choosing the mime type and
    transfer encoding.
    After adding the attachment, select it, press Ctrl+t to change the type
    to e.g. application/octet-stream, then press Ctrl+e to change the
    transfer encoding back to 8bit. Mutt is quite friendly in that regard :)
