Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        In earlier versions of bash it was possible to enter
multiline command arguments in quotes typing:

  command "Text on first line <RETURN>
text continued on next line"

        In bash 2.05 this doesn't work any more, it gets 
        into a state where it doesn't accept commands any
        more until CTRL-C is pressed. That sounds similair 
        to the problem I reported a while ago (eval didn't
        work in completion func) which is fixed now by using
        bison for translating parse.y. Maybe there's still
        something wrong in parse.y ?. Or am I missing only
        some new setopt feature?
        I'm using bash 2.05 with all patches from the website
        compiled applied.

Repeat-By: Enter the following, where <RETURN> is to be
        replaced by pressing the Return-Key

echo "Text on first line <RETURN>
text continued on next line"

Fix:    Sorry, No Idea.
