--- Comment #1 from Ed Maste <emaste@freebsd.org> ---
Can you try this with sc(4) (and a 80 col wide terminal):

$ printf

then copy and paste, and report whether it is three or four lines? xterm
handles this correctly (as an 81-char line, and then two at 79 and 1).

My suspicion is that sc(4) just strips trailing whitespace, which is not quite
correct but preferable.
