Only first line of Packet Comment shown in Packet Detail pane

When creating a packet comment, the Packet Comment pop-up allows the use of CRLF within the comment, and in frame.comment it is indeed present, e.g. if a custom column is created with the value of frame.comment, comments with CLRFs appear as "first line\nsecond line", however in the Packet Detail pane, in the Packet comment layer of the packet, only the first row is displayed.

Can someone confirm this? Is it an issue with my setup? If so, what can I change to mend this?

Thanks in advance!
