[issue2472] hg convert doesn't work with branches that contain new lines in the name

New submission from Andrew M. <andrew.myers1984 at gmail.com>:

Its possible to create branches with a newline character in the name. 

The problem is if you want to rename this using hg convert, it fails.

The problem is hg convert assumes the branch mappings will not contain a new 
line:
