The google groups posting interface wants original lines (not quoted
lines) to have no more than 70 characters. If a line is too long, it
will insert a hard CR at the last possible word break that will keep
the line length <= 70 characters. (Trailing spaces are eliminated.)
Your problem stems from the fact that it thinks hyphenated words can
be broken after the hyphen. The solution is to insert your own CRs.
