Looks as if you are escaping the newlines - are you using \\n in your
templates? If so, try losing one of the backslashes - or put explicit
newlines in the string which should amount to the same thing:

(setq org-capture-templates
'(                   ("t" "" entry (file+headline "~/lib/org/todo.org" "Tasks") "* TODO %?
  %U %a" :prepend t)
