For some time now, emails from b.m.o about updates to bugs seem to contain one or more newlines in strange places, places where they don't belong. These newline characters are not present in the actual bug database subject entry. They are inserted in the course of making the email. They don't affect every bug, but the bugs that are affected are affected consistently (every email for those bugs has the problem). Here are some examples: 1. two unneeded newlines Subject: [Bug 397405] Should be able to change the interval for which cert chain is present in cache 2. two unneeded newlines Subject: [Bug 397405] New: Should be able to change the interval for which cert chain is present in cache 3. newline in the middle of a file name Subject: [Bug 397122] NSS 3.12 alpha treats a key3. db with no global salt as having no password 4. two unneeded newlines, one in the middle of a URL Subject: [Bug 397178] Crash when entering chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword. xul in URL bar 5. in a review email, but in a different place in the associated normal bug mail, e.g. Subject: review granted: [Bug 254987] Continuation and TimerManager threads survive PR_Cleanup Subject: [Bug 254987] Continuation and TimerManager threads survive PR_Cleanup 6. newline in the middle of a symbolic name Subject: review granted: [Bug 334285] PR_REALLOC is missused in [@ ExpandMonitorCache] 7. Subject: [Bug 383229] Password Manager should honor the master password timeout prefs 8. two unneeded newlines, one in the middle of a release number. Subject: [Bug 397122] NSS 3.12 alpha sees no keys in key3.db that works OK with 3.11 .x 9. bizarre single-character line Subject: [Bug 327181] Improve error reporting for invalid-certificate errors ( error page for https, or combined dialog) 10. The above example changed when the subject was edited: Subject: [Bug 327181] Use error pages for https invalid-certificate errors ( instead of dialogs)
This is a dupe. Don't have the number handy. It's an upstream bug in the Email:: modules I believe. Original bug is in the Bugzilla product.

The problem is made worse, and more apparent, by the insertion of more than one blank character at the beginning of the split line(s). Subject: [Bug 397405] Should be able to change the interval for which cert chain is present in cache Subject: [Bug 294531] Design new interfaces for certificate path building and verification for libPKIX Thunderbird eats the newline and ONE space, but the extra spaces really stick out. The above lines appear as v- very apparent Subject: [Bug 397405] Should be able to change the interval for which cert Subject: [Bug 294531] Design new interfaces for certificate path building ^- very apparent This behavior (odd newlines seems to have begun in June, but the additional space characters began just in the last week or 2 (or 3). It seems to have suddently gotten MUCH worse today.
This problem is actively discussed in bug 374424. It seems that several characters cause newlines to appear.
