           Summary: ToolTip.SetToolTip() messes up line breaks
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries

Description of Problem:

Contrary to the MS framework, MONO's ToolTip class cannot display line breaks
('\n') correctly.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

Consider the following C# example:

ToolTip t;
t.SetToolTip( some_cntrl, "Line1\nLine2" );

Actual Results:

It seems that a tool tip window with the correct bounds (two lines) is shown,
but the text is displayed only as a single line, with a non printable character
instead of the newline char. Also this single line exceeds the bounds of the
window and cannot be read fully.

Expected Results:

The text should appear in two separate lines and be completly readable.

How often does this happen?
