[messages] [Technical Support & Bugs] Resizing "Properties" windows doesn't extend text fields

G'day all,

I'm not sure if this is a bug or intended behaviour but I have found a
difference between the way Vassal 3.1.20 and the latest 3.2 build
(VASSAL 3.2.0-svn8359) deal with resizing "Properties" window dialogs.

For example, when editing a Report action property in 3.1.20, when you
resize the window by dragging the right edge of the window to the right,
the text field will expand to the right so that you can type out a long
report and see it in full.

Whereas in VASSAL 3.2.0-svn8359, resizing the window in the above manner
only makes the window larger, but leaves the text fields at their
original size. Thus you are forced to use the one sized text field for
editing which makes it harder to edit long reports.

This behaviour exists in other Property windows also, it is not isolated
to the Report action property.

I have submitted this as bug 4788.
