Use case that demonstrates problem:
  1. Open a topic's "Topic Preference" interface and define two settings with no value such as following:
  1. Save the change
  2. Reopen Topic Preferences. The two value settings will be run together.

I don't know how to further describe the problem.... deleted line returns maybe?

Easy to reproduce.Confirmed and raising to urgent.

I think I can fix this one

I have a fix. Just testing it and trying to understand a small Perl oddity before I check in the fix.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 16 Jun 2008

The problem was that a regex made for parsing line by line was too greedy and "ate" the setting line below the one with no value making a goofed result of both.

Fixing the regex in TWiki.pm was no good because that broke the multiline parsing. Instead I made a modified regex but still using the standard regexes for the part that is important for i18n.

Unit tests pass. Waiting for release
