It turns out that qmail complains about bare line feeds, even for
lines embedded in the mail body. There are one or two places where a
bare line feed could occur inside the message. Anyway this is now
fixed, thanks to Rail Aliev who tracked this down. The fix will be
part of the next monit release or you may check out the current monit
development code from anonymous cvs if you are in a hurry.
