No, it just means our parsing is retarded, and is relying on some
weird detail.  Again, it's the presence or absence of a newline that
causes this.  You can put the newline literally *anywhere* after the "
(well, anywhere whitespace is allowed), and you get the effect.

Yeah, our parsing is clearly just all kinds of screwed up here.
