I'm not administrator of this mail server, it's my ISP. My email client
can't filter the returned emails, because I can't build rules with
sylpheed based on the content of the mail (only the headers) and the
headers are the same for svn failed messages and other failed messages
(since I want to know when an email I send doesn't reach it's destination
I can't simply filter all returned mails to trash).

Around 5 such mails piled up in my inbox in the past hour.

If you don't want to fix it, I will live with it (or switch to daily
delivery / leave the list). I don't know about RFCs for mail formats, but
using outrageously long Subject lines seems a pretty wacky use of email,
whatever the reasons.
