That's even more fun --- the plain-text version didn't have the leading
space. (You can see below; my mailer doesn't strip leading or trailing
whitespace.)

To the point, though, I wonder what it was considered to be
a continuation of. Perhaps it was something like

   foo = bar
   # comment
   # comment
    foo2 = bar2

interpreted as

   foo = bar foo2 = bar2

(key 'foo', valud 'bar foo2 = bar2')

(view this emssage as plaintext or as source to get teh right
indentation)

Yeah, we're not going to fix 1.6.11 bugs at this point. Bugs in 1.6.18
would be a hard sell too, unless they affect 1.7.4 or trunk.
