conmon causes extra newlines in container output logged to journald

conmon (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

We expect that each line sent to stdout/stderr from a program running within a podman container will be captured as a single journald entry. Instead, conmon is sometimes splitting individual application log lines into many journald entries. This can make journald log entries for podman containers very messy, and difficult to read and reason about.
