Okay... wtf!? I've been seeing this happen, but had thought it was a bug
in people's MUAs. I sent this in plain-text only, using mutt, and it
certainly had eols in there. Is this a bug in the list manager, then?

It's also not my MUA: I just checked my /var/mail spoolfile directly;
and anyway, the ubuntu lists are the only ones exhibiting this problem
(can't recall if there were other ubuntu lists I was seeing this on).
