Yes, the output of charset_decode1522() is intended to be fed into the 
Cyrus IMAP SEARCH algorithm, which ignores whitespace. It also does case 
folding, preventing "i;octet" searches from working.

charset_decode1522() would work if it was using a different transcoding 
table than what is generated in the lib/ directory.
