This gives me a STDIN with Log Message first, not the same as the old

So I tried variations like this:
%<<Modified Files:\n %{sVvt} %<<\nLog message:\n%m
to get stuff in the right sequence, but it does not work. I am getting
an error message:
"Unterminated multiline expansion at line 29 of CVSROOT/loginfook"
and cvs seems to hang (client side).

Reading the cvs.chm helpfile does not make it clear to me what is
unterminated. How can I get the log message to come out last (like it
did in previous versions of CVS)??
I'd like to set it up so that this is the result:

Modified Files:
<list of files with tags>
Log Message:
<The entered log message>

Notice the line ends after the identifiers and the sequence of items.
