When trying to add a title with multiple lines, only the first line is shown.

Steps to reproduce:

close all
graphics_toolkit gnuplot
title({'test1', 'test2'})

Additionally, the following message appears at the command prompt:

multiplot> test2" font ":Bold,11" textcolor rgb "
           line 0: invalid command

I can reproduce on Linux and Windows with builds from the current default branch (hg id 3e046fba8805 on Linux).
It still works with Octave 6.2.0 on Windows.

It might also be an incompatibility with newer gnuplot versions.
