Summary: newlist alias output error

Initial Comment:
I had a problem with Mailman-2.0.10 not responding to
confirmation e-mail submissions.

I found that there was no newline between newlist's
-request and -owner aliases output (they were
concatenated).

This led to anything sent to the -request alias being
silently ignored. Separating the aliases restored
correct  operation of confirmation processing.

Regards,

On further investigation this doesn't appear to be caused by
newlist but copy'n'paste of the aliases output.

It appears that if the -request alias is exactly one screen
width and copy'n'paste is performed on the aliases then
aliases are concatenated.

It's just something to watch out for.
