sorry. not a bug. behavior needed to meet the jar spec. 

>From the <jar> documentation

Manifests are processed by the Jar task according to the Jar file specification.
Note in particular that this may result in manifest lines greater than 72 bytes
being wrapped and continued on the next line. 

And, following the link:   
No line may be longer than 72 bytes (not characters), in its UTF8-encoded form.
If a value would make the initial line longer than this, it should be continued
on extra lines (each starting with a single SPACE). 

so, we think we are doing it right and all compliant manifest reading apps think
so too. If you can find an updated version of the spec that says we shouldnt be
break lines, then you can point us to it when you reopen the bug.
