This was due to the seemingly increasing number of rejected/bounced messages from certain domains resulting in the recipient being automatically unsubscribed from the list. I changed this relatively recently (last month?). I was unaware of the patchwork issue.

Did you try the "wrap" option? As I understand it, it would preserve
the original mail entirely, and rely on the mail client of the
recipient (ie. us) to properly unwrap the MIME container.
We've had various problems of authorship in patches getting mangled by
this, so if that could prevent it, that would be useful.
