Compiler Bug???

Hi all,
Am using the latest version of CW for the HCS12.
When defining a macro does the compiler ignore the "\" command that tells it the code continues on the next line.
Let me explain. In the following macro
#define OSEnterCritical()               do {  __asm PSHC;    \
                                                                __asm SEI;        \
                                                               DiHook();            \
                                                        } while (0)
the second and third lines are ignored when compiling.
If you put those lines on the same line as the first all is ok.
#define OSEnterCritical()               do {  __asm PSHC;  __asm SEI;  DiHook();  \
                                                        } while (0)
The strange thing is that if you take a C file that uses the macro and you right click and perform a
preprocess of the file it produces the same output for either method.
If you instead generate a disassembly file only the later method works.
No errors or warnings are generated.
Anybody seen this or know what I'm doing wrong?
