Comment (by raphink):

 Several options are possible to fix this bug :[[BR]]

   1. add "\\" and "\n" as possible characters in the field. It will then
 be mapped with the "\\\n" in the string. This can potentially make some
 horrible lines that still have to be parsed ;[[BR]]

   2. parse the value of Defaults line by line and map it into the tree in
 "line" nodes. This makes it a bit heavy when there is only one line, and
 doesn't necessarily reflect the reality of the configuration ;[[BR]]

   3. parse the contents of Defaults. This allows to ignore the "\\\n" as
 value separators when they appear. This option might be harder to
 implement though, since Defaults values can be quite tricky.[[BR]]
