This is unlikely to be fixed any time soon (contributions are welcome).
Its part of the many little bugs in libgdiplus text support that
requires a major rewrite of this code (hopefully this time pango-based
with full i18n support).

You can probably work around this bug by dealing the individual lines in
your own code.
