I appreciate your looking into this.
That command sequence works for me as well, including with the previous version (20170522). It is not, however, equivalent to my case, since when composed in the shell in that manner, the job log stores a command delimited by NULL characters and not by line feeds. It appears to be line feeds themselves which cause the problem, as demonstrated by my previously enclosed log files.
I agree that using functions would be better in general. I do, however, still think that it would be nice if GNU Parallel could parse log files with line feeds in the job log. Ignoring lines not starting with a sequence number at least strikes me as a useful feature.
Thanks for your consideration,
