Log feed does not respect newlines in commit message

The Trac 0.10 Timeline feed used to include full multi-line commit messages. In Trac 0.11 this was apparently shortened to one line with ellipsis, leaving the the Log feed as official source of full commits.
The Log feed however differs from the old Timeline feed in mangling newlines into a single hardly readable block of text, e.g.:
* line one * line two

I can confirm that this happens for Safari 3.1.1 and Mac OS X Mail 3.3 as well.
This might be due to Trac writing raw newlines into the XML stream, which a conforming XML reader collapses to one white space character.
