I've tried without this line and what I get is the output... without
this line. So I think it's not what's messing things up.

I'm sure it's running through par. I have par installed, and when I change
the $filterprogram from 'par' to 'cat', I get each paragraph of the reply
as one very long line, instead of lines broken at 70-some characters. With
cat, however, I'm not losing the inter-paragraph blank lines, nor am I
getting blank lines inserted at the beginning.
