Go to the cc-mode info page, then find the page "Hanging Braces".  What
this says is that there is an association list called
"c-hanging-braces-alist".  In that alist, somehow, you'll have an entry
something like (brace-list-close before) which says "if the } just typed
was syntactically a brace-list-close, insert an extra newline _before_
the }".

Remove or modify this, and your problem will be solved (as opposed to
merely being work around).

By the way, to discover that the } was actually a "brace-list-close", you
make it the first symbol on a line (if it weren't there already :-) then
type C-c C-s.

Email: address@hidden; to decode, wherever there is a repeated letter
(like "aa"), remove half of them (leaving, say, "a").
