[New-bugs-announce] [issue4726] doctest gets line numbers wrong due to quotes in comments

New submission from guyer <guyer at nist.gov>:
My text editor places a comment block at the top of each source file with
a block of information about the author, the project, license, etc. One
(rather pointless) line of this block looks like
# FILE: "somefile.py"
The re in `_find_lineno()` misinterprets this line as the beginning of the
docstring. I believe the attached patch maintains the spirit of the re,
while avoiding this false positive.
