Manifest problem with line break

i have a project that uses ant. Ant produces a manifest file. This worked always well until yesterday: When i started my signed jar java told me, that the manifest contains an invalid field, but did not tell me which one. After hours of looking into my code and project, i found the error:

As you can see, there is a line break. Usually this leads to a space character at the beginning of the new line, but not in this case. The error also occurs with a _.

What can i do to let ant create a correct line break?
Thank you

Can you show us the relevant part of your Ant's build.xml file? Please wrap it in [code=xml] and [/code] so it will be properly formatted.
