This produces a CSV file from write.table() with a line-break halfway
through a record, thus:
"4" 4 "d"
"5" 5 "new
"6" 6 "f"
R will happily read.table() this back in again, but other packages may
not be so obliging. OpenOffice spreadsheet makes a hash of it, sticking
'line"' on a line on its own in the spreadsheet. I hope whatever Jens
wants to do with these CSV files works!
