FWIW, that is how mutt renders your email.  Others' emails to the list
look similar.  Looking at the emails with hexdump, it appears that
something on the delivery path strips newlines.

Mutt indicates this content encoding, and all of the problem emails have
this encoding in common:

  I     1 <no description>                      [text/plain, 8bit, utf-8, 0.6K] 

I have not ruled out the possibility that a virus/spam filter on my side
is corrupting the emails, but it is only wireshark-dev emails that are
corrupted in this way.
