Error creating perforce changelist with multiple lines of description

When i try to create a perforce changelist, if i specify multiple lines of text to go in the description field, VisBuildPro fails the step.

Ive attached a screenshot of the changelist tab in the perforce step

This is the output of the step:

--------------------Starting Build: 'WAGON_BUILD.bld'--------------------
Building project step 'Create a changelist'...
Performing requested command...
Sending form to Perforce executable:
Change: new

test line 1
test line 2


p4 -cGRIBBLE_WAGON_MAIN -pperforce:1666 -uryan.gribble -P****** change -i
Error in change specification.
Error detected at line test.
Syntax error at 'test'.

Process completed with exit code 1
Step 'Create a changelist' failed
Build ended.

Each line of the description in a submitted form for a changelist must begin with a space, and the Perforce action doesn't currently ensure that except on the first line. We'll log this as a bug. You can workaround it for now by adding a space at the start of each line in the Description field:

test line 1
<space>test line 2
<space>test line 3
