L4Linux and weird newlines

I'm getting lots of weird newlines in L4Linux. Where do they come from
and how do I turn them of? Here's a simple example which shows the problem:

localhost ~ # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null count=100
100+0 records in
100+0 records out
51200 bytes (51 kB) copied, 0.0262116 s, 2.0 MB/s
localhost ~ # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null count=1000

1000+0 records in
1000+0 records out
512000  bytes (512 kB) copied, 0.274718 s, 1.9 MB/s
localhost ~ # dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null count=2000

2000+0 records in
2000+0 records out

1024000  bytes (1.0 MB) copied, 0.580115 s, 1.8 MB/s
localhost ~ #

The higher the count value is, the more new lines I get. It's often
impossible to see any actual output messages.

Any help greatly appreciated.
