I think that this is a client problem; the server never breaks up long lines.
One possibly relevant change did appear in 1.8.0: the server now treats
carriage-return (015 octal) as an end-of-line character; previously it was
completely ignored by the server. If your Mac client was itself breaking this
into multiple lines (using the standard Mac line-break character: CR) then this
would explain all of the behavior you're seeing, including the fact that it
worked in 1.7.9.
