inncheck:  mention that the run-away quote warning may be a false positive

In cases where an option value spans more than two lines, i.e.  there is
at least one line that doesn't even contain a single double-quote, there
will also be an error messages about an invalid option name as well as
one about a missing colon...

Thanks to Jeffrey M. Vinocur and Florian Schlichting for this suggestion.
