Not reproducible here with new drawing, multiline text.
Please attach or e-mail drawing file if possible, thanks.

Hi Andrew,
This file when opened in Autocad 2009 will display only the first line of text centred to the overall text position.
I have seen this with several versions of Autocad. Simmilarly I have had Autocad files open with messed up text in QCAD. PDF of Result included.

Could it be that you are using a release candidate (RC) of QCAD 3 and not the final version?
When I load the drawing in QCAD 3 final, the text is also shown on one line. If I correct the text in QCAD 3 final and save as DWG 2010, it opens fine in Autocad.
