I think João sees it the same way.

Although it won't be difficult to fix, this bug is an awkward thing, and
will need decisions (smallish ones) to be taken.

My favoured method would be to alter electric-pair--skip-whitespace such
that a NL terminating a string (as contrasted with a NL terminating a
comment) would be allowed to be scanned over.
