I see this was reported by others in other forums.
I will try the modified eme_functions.php and report back if that works or not as soon as I can.
I am definitely using div (and p) tags in templates, as I have created responsive code for form templates in place of the old default tables.
The next version has been released and the version in dev even has a small extra improvement (no br tag will get added if the next line starts with a html closing tag)
It is not nice to add a br to for example a td-entry if the opening/content/closing html is spread over 3 lines (where it would add a br to the content). Adding a br will not result in a visual change, but not nice anyway 🙂
