I could be wrong of course, but I can't think of anything in either
Python or Mailman that would do that conversion.  Another simple
experiment is to write a little Python mail program that just parses
stdin, then writes the flattened text out to a file.  See if that has
the newline problem.

You're basically going to have to work your way up your tool chain to
see where the transformation is happening.
