The blank line in input causes a break.  Logically, one might expect .(c
to force one anyway, but from your example it seems that it doesn't.

I don't use -me, (and don't have the inclination to peruse its info or
man documentation to confirm), but this does seem like a bug.  I'll
leave it to the -me experts to comment further.
