Bad matching of inline math delimiters with line breaks in between #77

For example:

$$1$$ A $$2$$

$$ A $$2$$


<p><script type="math/tex">1</script> A <script

<script type="math/tex"> A </script>2$$</p>

Notice that in the first case 1 and 2 are correctly recognized as math, but in the second case the line break makes
the closing $$ of 1 match the opening $$ of 2.

Maybe this is intended to work that way but I couldn't find any precise assertion regarding this in the documentation.
Besides, the behavior wreaks havoc with editors that insert line breaks when formatting paragraphs, like vim.

NOTE: I've also reported this here .

Thanks for reporting! The problem was a bad regexp - will be fixed with the next release.
