Cyrus isn't converting anything. What you're seeing is GIGO (garbage

complain about the software that generated this message.

If you want to build more intelligence into Cyrus' message parsing, we'd
be glad to look at a patch, but we're not going to expend a lot of
energy trying to "fix" broken messages.
