So a slightly shorter example uses ru''. This is an error because you can't combine the r prefix and the u prefix (in fact you can't combine anything with the r prefix).

I declare that this is a bug to report EOF here and the code should *first* check for a valid combination (e.g. fr'' or rf'') and only *then* try to distinguish between single and triple quotes.
