The poster's MUA split the line before it ever got to Mailman. Possibly
it just split the line, in which case the MUA is at fault, or possibly
it specified parameters "format=flowed,delsp=yes" in the message's
Content-Type:, expecting the receiving MUA to put it back together.

In the latter case, Scrubber used to lose those parameters. That is
fixed in Mailman 2.1.10, but I don't think pipermail knows how to
handle format=flowed in any case.
