           Summary: Newline in form caption
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Windows.Forms

The following issues occur when a form has a new line in it's caption.
On Windows: MDI child window title bar will show a two-line text.
On Linux: regular forms will truncate the text on the new line and MDI child
window title bar will show a two-line text, just like on Windows.

The expected behavior is that non-printable characters are rendered as a box or
another printable character.

using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.IO;

static class Program {

        static void Main() {
                Form MainForm = new Form();
                MainForm.Text = "This is a " + System.Environment.NewLine +
                MainForm.IsMdiContainer = true;
                ChildForm s = new ChildForm(MainForm);
                s.Text = "This is a " + System.Environment.NewLine + "test";

public class ChildForm : Form {

        public ChildForm(Form parent)
                MdiParent = parent;
