My problem or bad-header?

I get quarantined mails like:

total 64
-rw-r----- 1 amavis amavis 57439 Jan 20 16:59 badh-7T8TTrFCQb9p

Return-Path: <postmaster at>
Delivered-To: bad-header-quarantine
X-Envelope-From: <postmaster at>
X-Envelope-To: <user at>
X-Quarantine-ID: <7T8TTrFCQb9p>
X-Amavis-Alert: BAD HEADER SECTION MIME error: error: couldn't parse head;
        error near:; name="banner.jpg"; Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64;
        Content-ID: <ii_13487268bdc534f2>; X-Attachment-Id:
        ii_13487268bdc534f2; Content-Disposition: inline;

So far, so good - why do I want crap on my systems, right?  But
sometimes some pretty big names show up - and one sleeping sysadmin I
can excuse, but when Cahoot, FriendsReunited and Bitcasa all have the
same issue, I start to think I may have messed up my config.

The example above had:

Content-Type: image/jpeg;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-ID: <ii_13487268bdc534f2>
X-Attachment-Id: ii_13487268bdc534f2
Content-Disposition: inline;

So, is this my problem or theirs?
