bug#11138: 23.3; on Windows, message-box does not display line breaks in

From: Dino Chiesa
Subject: bug#11138: 23.3; on Windows, message-box does not display line breaks in the message
Date: Sat, 31 Mar 2012 07:53:40 -0700

When I run this code:
  (message-box (concat "First line in a long-ish message.\n"
                     "This is line number 2 in the message."))
The message gets displayed in one very wide dialog box.
I would expect it to break at the \n.  Line breaks work, apparently,
on Linux, so I am told. But I have confirmed with others that they
see this anomalous message-box behavior on Windows .
