Hello all,

Doing some experiments on writing to the log, I find that the XeTeX
format shows different behaviour from other formats with respect to ^^J.


with pdfTeX or LuaTeX gives two lines in the log


but with XeTeX gives


LaTeX and ConTeXt (MkII) show identical behaviour for XeTeX and pdfTeX
(and LuaTeX in the LaTeX case).

Anyone know why this is, and if it's deliberate?
