pylint #2457 line too long on docstring [open]

i had a look at the source: the culprit seems to be the (use of the) tokenize.generate_tokens function. it returns the whole triple-quoted string as one token, but where pylint.checkers.format.FormatChecker.process_tokens calls self.new_line it assumes that the token only brought one new line with it...

i have no idea why this does not happen on Linux too (and i am too lazy to reboot now ;-)

Python 2.4.1, Windows XP, pylint 0.7.0
