[New-bugs-announce] [issue21426] Invisible characters in email related souce files.

New submission from Milan Oberkirch:

I found non-printable characters in the source files of the email package. Vim rendered it as '^L', pasting it on the linux console has the same effect as CTRL+L. In most places it was combined with regular newlines, sometimes as a replacement, sometimes additionally to them.
My guess is that these files were saved with an editor replacing '\n' with '\r' and additional '\n' were inserted afterwards since the linebreaks seemed to be gone.

I replaced these chars by '\n' or '' in the attached patch.
