[Mailman-Users] quoted text in KFM Html-Widget

Some people here use the KFM as Web Browser (that is the file
manager belonging to the Linux K Desktop Environmenti aka KDE).
Although this works fine most of the time, the HTML generated by
Mailman looks ugly, if it comes to passages of quoted text: They all
end up as one continuous line causing a very long horizontal scrollbar 
to appear.

Although this might be a bug in the HTML widget of KFM, for the time
being I've applied the following (dirty) patch to mailman:

I've have noticed no negative side effects when viewing these pages using
other browsers like netscape.
