Certainly the new behavior is untenable; please revert my patch.  I
didn't know about the long format and didn't test it.  I took a quick
look but couldn't come up with a quick fix.  I'll try some more when I
have time, but it won't be soon; if you or somebody else can find a fix,
that would be great.  Or maybe this problem is a good argument for
hardcoding fixed-pitch for the proced header line.

Sorry for the poorly tested patch.
