Added a workaround for the problem in Two Brothers in r48279:

Currently there is no way to display more text than there is space available right on the screen. Any text that is "too much" is simply cut off. Usually you don't notice that when using a resolution of >=1024x768. But in smaller resolutions like 800x600 (or even 800x480) it might happen that text has to be cut off. This is currently (r48273) the case in some scenarios of Two Brothers with the lengthy diary entries and is even more problematic for translations that need more space than the English language (like eg German). The commit r48247 already significantly improved things by basically removing the "unused" border and filling it with text instead of whitespace.

For the moment I have to add a workaround to those story screens and split them in two. Since it is likely that translators are not aware of those problems I would propose adding vertical scrolling to the [story] screens if there is too much text to display it.
