Hi,

When uzing "l" to list content of archive p7zip outputs
additional spaces to file names, if file names are
shorter than 12 chars. I guess it tries to keep column
width (though i don't know why really, as longer names
will "go out of column" anyway), but it's wrong.
If file name contains spaces there's problem to know
which spaces are in file name, and which are just to
make column have at least 12 chars. It's not so bg
problem when spaces in name are inside, but it's not
possible to workaround that if spaces in name are at
the and of name.

Why not just finish name with nextline no matter how
long name is?
