We use custom fields with multiple values, and we notice an extra 0
after the value itself.

While we use RT 3.4.6, the code is mostly the same in RT 3.6.4, so I
wonder how nobody could have noticed that before.

When a custom field has more than one value, ShowCustomFields does the

<li><% $print_value->( $CustomField, $Value ) |n %></li>

The problem is, $print_value doesn't return a value, so 0 is used.  I
can't really make sense of the |n here, which doesn't change the
resulting value, as 0|n is still 0 (why Perl parses that is beyond my

The attached patch fixes the issue for me, but I really wonder what the
intent of the previous code was.  If anyone can enlighten me...  And if
the patch is the intended feature, feel free to commit it...
