The "reply" button on comments to tickets does not quote properly: In particular, line breaks are lost.

To reproduce, reply to a trac comment with content like the following:


the original message has two lines

As presented (using the standard email-like ">" markers) the rendered version will be more like:

hello the original message has two lines

Replying to drfarina@…:

comment:3 by drfarina@…, 12 years ago

The above messages demonstrate the issue. The response was generated simply by clicking "reply" and then submit. Nominally one would expect the linebreak to remain.
