There is a horrible, ugly hack in MIME::Tools that attempts to deal
with PDF files encoded using Quoted-Printable encoding.  I suspect that
something is triggering MIMEDefang to rebuild the message, and the horrible
ugly hack isn't working properly.

The REAL solution is: NEVER use Quoted-Printable encoding for PDF files.
Always use Base64.  If you can somehow convince your AIX boxes to do
this, you should be OK.
