Yes, this is by design.

The log message is cut off at the first newline because the column can't
hold unlimited chars (around 160 chars, less on Win2k).

As of revision 10244, I changed it so that the newline only cuts the
message of if it is at least 15 chars long. Otherwise the whole log
message is used (cut off at the column limit of course).
