NPE when parsing embedded quoted printable encoded message

                 Key: MIME4J-48
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-48
             Project: Mime4j
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.4
            Reporter: Niklas Therning
             Fix For: 0.4

When trying to parse a message which contains an embedded quoted printable message I received
a NullPointerException:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException
	at org.apache.james.mime4j.decoder.QuotedPrintableInputStream.populatePushbackQueue(QuotedPrintableInputStream.java:85)

I've figured out that it is the following code in MimeEntity which passes the null stream
when creating the QuotedPrintableInputStream:

    private EntityStateMachine nextMessage() {
        String transferEncoding = body.getTransferEncoding();
        InputStream instream;
        if (MimeUtil.isBase64Encoding(transferEncoding)) {
            log.debug("base64 encoded message/rfc822 detected");
            instream = new Base64InputStream(mimeStream);                    
        } else if (MimeUtil.isQuotedPrintableEncoded(transferEncoding)) {
            log.debug("quoted-printable encoded message/rfc822 detected");
            instream = new QuotedPrintableInputStream(mimeStream);                    
        } else {
            instream = dataStream;

mimeStream seems to be null in this situation. I've tried to use dataStream instead of mimeStream.
This seems to work better but when I do that I get an infinite loop when trying to parse an
embedded multipart message which has =3D in its boundary. I'll attach such a message.
