      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build
      1.3.1_01)

      A description of the problem :
      Japanese strings specified as messages in a JOptionPane
      result in a very wide dialog where the message cannot be
      fully read because it is not wrapped to new lines. I
      realize you can extend JOptionPane and override
      getMaxCharactersPerLineCount() to return a smaller count
      but the UI still searches for SPACES in the string to break
      on. Japanese strings do not have to contain spaces so it
      has no effect. A more stringent rule must be used for the
      JA locale to split up the strings.
      Note that this also pertains to ZH and any other locale
      that does not require spaces in the sentence strings.

      Steps to follow to reproduce the problem :
      1. call javax.swing.JOptionPane.showMessageDialog() with a
      long Japanese string for the message.


      Expected versus actual behavoir :
      You get a very long dialog where the message and dialog is
      truncated by the display size of your monitor. I would
      expect it to wrap the message and make the dialog fit on
      the display.

      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- Begin Source ----------
      This must be done on a JA machine and is a simple test so I
      will not include a sample.
