disclaimers broken by Android?

We have several reports now that when clients send out emails via an 
Android device, the disclaimer function in Amavis fails to fire.  The 
devices are correctly using port 587 on the MTA for submission, but any 
emails generated via the device do not have a disclaimer attached.  Same 
user using some other MUA, the disclaimer is correctly attached.  In our 
disclaimer setup, both TEXT and HTML disclaimers exist.

The issue seems to be because of the Content Type.  For example, with 
Thunderbird as the MUA, we see:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

But with Android, we see:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative; 

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

And no attachment.  Is this a known bug/issue in Amavis?
