Thanks Ivan. The orginal code was mine (a "DIY" solution), and I was aware 
of the problem with the ugly linebreaks on Windows, but hadn't yet 
investigated it further. FWIW I thought no space after the last item on 
a line, rather than no no space when there is only one item on a line, 
was the obvious course of action to pursue, but I'm sure the code from GNU 
ls achieves the same even better than hacking my code would.
