Multiline Text Dialog Boxes in Mono Xwt

I’ve been experimenting with the Mono Xwt library recently. I kind of like the idea of being able to develop once and run on any machine (don’t ask about redistributing Mono libraries, I’ve yet to learn that lesson). I hit a bit of a “speed bump” when I tried to create a dialog box with a decent amount on text in it. Searching only drew complaints about how Xwt lacks a multi-line text display. So I did a little hacking/experimenting and managed to come up with this work-around.
