Description of problem:
When editing a smart class parameter's value (using the 'edit host' page), escape backslash (\) and CRLF (\r\n) control characters are shown (like preventing the expansion) for all the data entered on that value field. (see attached Satellite-escape-error.png screenshot)
On the Smart Class page, on the 'specify matchers' section, the values are shown correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 1000%
To reproduce the error, edit a host, change puppet environment and check any multiline parameters values.
Apparently this behavior occurs when changing the parameter type to an array or yaml type.
All values are escaped with \ for " and \r\n where you have CRLF characters.
All the values should be available to be edited without any \ escape character and/or \r\n
