Parse error when using four dashes to signal metadata #1222

Using four dashes to indicate a metadata section leads to a confusing error.


A clear error when using four dashes, stating that four dashes are not valid.


A weird error:

did not find expected node content while parsing a block node at line 2 column 1


The filesystem data source sometimes accepts 3, 4, or 5 dashes, and at other times, accepts only 3 or 5:

It should disallow four dashes.
