Well, if I'd known we were as far away from a release as we turned out
to be at the time the original multiline limitation was discovered, I
would have submitted a patch for inclusion in 8.0. Never mind -
hindsight doesn't help much. Just go with the tiny patch. If anyone
wants the later fix it's very easy to get, because it was the first
patch applied after 8.0 branched. Just dropping in the later version of
copy.c should work.

regression patch against 8.0 branch attached.
