Well,
I'm doing some tests and the output is very strange for me...

On the same terminal (kterminal) in a very big window, if I run yum list
available I obtain a list in which every line end to the right border.

If, in the same terminal, I use yum list available | less or even |
more, I obtain a very short line.

This is an output example.

yum list available | more
BasiliskII.i386                     1.0-0.20060501.3.fc9
                                                        rpmfusion-free-updates

yum list available basilisk\*

Pacchetti disponibili
BasiliskII.i386                                                                      1.0-0.20060501.3.fc9                                                                      rpmfusion-free-updates

but,
if I run the command
   yum list available basilisk\* | more I obtain

Pacchetti disponibili
BasiliskII.i386           1.0-0.20060501.3.fc9            rpmfusion-free-updates

that is what I expect.

I did the same experiment with the same result. What I don't understand is why this is a problem. If you're piping the output of "yum list" to something else for further processing, you're getting one line of output, which is what you want.
