Why isn't regexpwndtitle picking up multi-line value shown in object spy in UFT?

Here's what is happening:

1. Application (C ) is displaying a popup message

2. Object Spy shows the regexpwndtitle property of the message text as having a value of "multi-line value"

3. When the property/values are copied into the clipboard and then viewed,
the regexpwndtitle value shows regexpwndtitle:= Special: This
allows you to save the value\.\r\n, which is the second line in the list!

I've tried setting the regexpwndtitle to a regular expression that should match the text in the first line of the message (.*subset of first line of popup message.*), to no avail.

Anyone with similar difficulties that has cracked this?
