Strange behaviour with new-line characters:

>---input file---<
#use wml::std::tags

<define-tag perltag1>\
<perl:print>one line</perl:print>

<define-tag normaltag>\
another line\

<define-tag perltag2>\
<perl:assign $tag1><perltag1></perl:assign>


.*.one line
.-.another line.-.
one line

>---expected output---<
.*.one line.*.
.-.another line.-.
.+..1.one line.2..+.

Especially the behaviour in perltag2 is nasty because of the inserted 
new line character in front of the variable - I use standard tags to 
generate icons like <makeicon "abcd.jpg"> and the result is the filename 
of the icon, which I want to use in another Perl construct (to determine 
the size), but I have to clean up the variable before I can use it :-(
