I don't think the problem here has anything to do with
strange line breaks. As far as I can tell these are
artifically inserted by the email system on long lines.
The issue that Mike was pointing at was the use of the
_ in the name


My explanation is that the _ acts as an escape so that
- is parsed as part of the name and not an operator.
Does this make sense to you? Is it true that this use
of _ appears first at the bootsys level of the code?
