Please check your mailer configuration, it looks like it's reformatting
all the text with much longer line widths.

So, clearly this is unrelated to the change you mentioned in your commit
message - it looks like this is just a plain issue in the machine
driver.  That said the above code should be changed to at least ignore
the setting in slave mode (since the clock shouldn't be being driven and
it doesn't matter).
