Haven't tried your surprise yet -- but I was surprised to find that "\n"expr1a + expr1b and "\n"(expr1a+expr1b) functioned differently -- and now I understand why. Is multiplying a general expression by a string ("\n") actually legal syntax? (and if not, should my using it have triggered an error message?)
