Hi!

dataValidation.createPromptBox("something\nother") shows two lines if implementation is HSSFDataValidation, but only "somethingother" if implementation is XSSFDataValidation.
Workaround is simply to replace \n with _x000a_

Should be fixed via r1771396, we now encode any special characters below Unicode 32 before we add a title or text for data validations.
