Extended regex always counts as uncovered #43

I just had a failing rcov run on code that kind of suprised me.

When rcov 0.9.6 scans extended regular expressions (multi-line with comments), only the first line is considered "covered" -- the remains are always uncovered.

For example, only the first line of the following will be "covered":

regex = /
  https? # http or https
  \:\/\/ # colon-slash-slash
  ( # hostname (capture group 1)
    [A-Za-z0-9.-] # any seperators
  \/ # trailing slash

Just hit on that myself. I'm writing my code with a threshold 100% coverage and this forces me to put the whole thing on one line, which isn't very readable.

Still the case with 0.9.11.

This is another one of the multiline bugs. I will create a new category to group these
