FAQ
Is there any real reason that commands are being truncated if they have
an embedded new line?

Removing these lines makes test t/op/gv.t work on OpenVMS and improves
some other tests that are still failing for other reasons.

The way that parameters are passed to sub-processes on OpenVMS will pass
all non-null binary data through to the program with out the DCL command
interpreter processing them.

    My guess would be older versions of DCL choked on newlines.
