You need to start continuation lines with whitespace, but possibly your mailer wrapped this. (For readability I would wrap it in the DESCRIPTION file.)

I tried in a vanilla session on Linux and colorspace was installed. Was this a vanilla session? Does it work with type="source"?

It would be helpful if you could debug this as probably no one else can: the code has been in use for a long time without any reported problems.
