This is because you are composing your message in HTML.  When you hit
enter the HTML editor is treating it like a new paragraph which adds the
extra line.  You can either hit alt-enter and it will give you a single
line or switch to composing your messages in plain text.

I am not sure if the developers of Roundcude will change this behavior or
