Very OT: nfbtrans and line breaks

Sorry for the way Ot post but I didn't know where else to post it and 
I'm hoping somebody here may have the answer.

I find that when converting text files written on my computer to 
braille files, line breaks are ignored. If I leave a blank line between 
lines of text, which isn't terribly practical anyway, line breaks are 
honored but are apparently interpreted as the signal for a new 
paragraph as each line ends up being indented two spaces. Is there a 
way to have the new lines in the text file converted properly in the 
braille file?

This is very offtopic, so if somebody wants to reply offlist, that's fine.
