When sending an e-mail that is translated using Entity Translation (combined with the Title module), the title field for the original language becomes empty. This does not occur when sending a test e-mail.
When I comment out the call to node_save (in includes/simplenews.mail.inc, line 650) the title remains in place. Maybe it works better if it's converted to use the entity api. I can look at it some more tomorrow.
