Subject: macOS client issue with line breaks in the configuration

Hello,

I had an interesting issue with the macOS client, where I used copy and 
paste from an e-mail to fill in the configuration. Although everything 
looked syntactically correct, it was not syntax highlighted correctly 
and could not be saved. It took me a while to realize, this was caused 
by DOS line breaks in the source mail, which were copied with the text 
and could not be parsed properly.

 From my perspective, either the parser should be able to deal with 
unexpected line breaks, or line breaks should be normalized, when text 
is pasted to the text area, to avoid such an issue, which is hard to 
understand for the average user.

Regards,
Malte
