I was about to submit some interesting fingerprints via

be ignored.

Hi Hans.  Tahnks for the report, but I'm having some trouble
reproducing this.  What, exactly did you paste in?  I just tried
adding spaces to the end of individual lines, at the end of the whole
fingerprint, and even added some newlines to the beginning, end, end
and middle.  And it still says "Fingerprint looks good!" in green.

I was trying the same thing. I only got the red text when I put extra
whitespace at the end of the first line. It didn't happen on any of the
other lines, as far as I could tell.
