Hi Nick,
When importing data from text files with tab as fields separator and double-quote as text delimiter, fields with linefeeds/break-lines/carriage returns don't seem to be imported.
Example of data:

Mr[TAB]Jobs[TAB]Steve[TAB]"68040 Avenue Motorola[LF]Hall 1"

Here's an example of how OpenOffice/NeoOffice sees this kind of file:

When imported into these apps, line-feeds (the small arrow in address field) are correctly displayed as "break line" (or new line…):

Thanks, Jean-Jacques. Possibly we'll support import of multi-line data from a text file.
