The thing is that Matlab has a quirk where a' means the transpose of a
and 'a' means the string containing a, and Octave inherits this
syntax. That's the trickiest thing about single-quote strings in
Octave (and why Octave sources encourage using double-quote strings
all the time).

I still don't get why this is related to multiline issues, though.
Where is your patch?
