I can refile into the longlines format buffer and it looks fine until
I close and reopen the buffer, then it is all drawn out into one long
line, the headline instead of broken up.   One other behavior I have
noticed is that when I change state it generates the logbook and
changes the state but then changes it from
- state changed from etc
to all being in one long line like
:LOGBOOK - state changed from etc :END: . . .

I have attatched a sample buffer with some sample TODO's refiled in
from capture and the capture templates out of my .emacs in it as well.
