No, it's supposed to work out of the box.

That looks right. Though I wouldn't be surprised if whatever generated
the "flowed" also screwed up patch whitespace.

After "git am" bails, what does .git/rebase-apply/patch look like?

It should have the quoted-printable bits decoded. If it doesn't, then we
need to figure out why the qp-decoding didn't kick in. It would help to
see the whole input mbox then.

If it does have the qp bits decoded, then I'd suspect that maybe there's
whitespace damage caused by the MUA.
