GHC 6.2 breaks multiline string literals

This worked in GHC 6.0.1:

multilineLiteral = "

But doesn't work in GHC 6.2. Is this a bug or rather a bugfix?

Anyway, I found it very convenient to embed verbatim string blocks this 
way. Is there maybe another way to achieve the same thing?

Thanks in advance,
